The Fulbright Commission in Austria offers up to 25 Fulbright student grants for recent US undergraduates and graduate students for research and study in Austria. Advance planning is important. An annual grant competition is managed by the Institute of International Education (with an application deadline in October) which prescreens applications. The files of semi-finalists are forwarded to the Austrian-American Educational Commission in Vienna, and a binational committee selects finalists, who are notified about the status of their applications in March/April.
Students should note their interest in the specific awards in their application and select Full, IFK, Diplomatic Academy, Combined Grant, Community-Based Combined Grant or Austrian-Hungarian Grant in the drop-down menu in step B, Section 3a Special Opportunity in the Embark on-line application.
For access to the online application and detailed information on the application process please consult Fulbright Online.
