The Fulbright Student Scholarship Program in Lebanon, which provides full funding for two academic years to achieve masters degree programs beginning in August 2014, 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 90 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.).
The Fulbright Alumni Association of Lebanon (FAAL) invites all prospective applicants to the Fulbright Scholarship to a “Meet and Greet Session with Fulbright Alumni” on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 10am to 1pm at AMIDEAST’s office in downtown Beirut. This is your opportunity to ask about the scholarship and learn from the experiences of those who have completed their program. Kindly RSVP by 26 March 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org
