Fulbright Program in Lebanon

The Fulbright Student Scholarship Program in Lebanon, which provides full funding for two academic years to achieve masters degree programs beginning in August 2016, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State through the Embassy of the United States of America in Lebanon. AMIDEAST administers the program, which is funded by the U.S. Congress. Originally proposed by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1945, the scholarship has become the U.S. government’s flagship program in international educational exchange. Since 2000, over 127 Lebanese professionals and students from all over Lebanon have earned their master’s degrees.    

The grant includes: roundtrip airfare between Lebanon and the United States, tuition, books, health insurance, and room and board. Funding is not available to meet the expenses of Fulbright students’ dependents (spouses, children, parents, etc.). 

As part of your application, you will need to present a TOEFL score. If you do not have one already, learn more about the Institutional TOEFL ( ITP) test dates.
