Austrian Fulbright Student Program

Fulbright awards change lives and enhance careers. The Austrian Fulbright Student Program provides Austrian students who have completed their first degrees and are interested in enrolling in one- or multi-year master’s programs at leading universities all over the United States with generous scholarship support. Fulbright Austria coaches candidates for these prestigious Fulbright awards throughout the entire application process, which also includes university placement and the solicitation of valuable additional financial support from US institutions. Austrian Fulbright students enhance their skill sets in challenging programs of their own choice and enjoy all of the benefits of being members of an international network of Fulbright grantees and alumni in the US. Following its mandate to promote "mutual understanding between the peoples of Austria and the United States of America,” Fulbright Austria is particularly interested in applicants whose personality, interests, and career plans will contribute to the advancement of intercultural understanding.
