International Fulbright Science & Technology Awards

As a recent Fulbright Alum, I highly recommend fellow MESA students to apply for a Fulbright Science & Technology Award. If you are interested in applying and would like assistance with your application (CVs, essays, etc.) please don’t hesitate to contact Keoni. Note that this scholarship is for Honors or Masters students.

Fulbright New Zealand invites applications for the most prestigious international scholarship in science and technology, the International Fulbright Science & Technology Awards. Valued at over NZ$350,000 each, these awards are for promising graduate students to complete a fully-funded PhD at top American universities in fields of science, technology or engineering.

Approximately 40 awards are offered each year to graduate students from around the world who demonstrate unique aptitude and innovation in scientific fields, leadership potential and the ability to be a cultural ambassador for their country. Candidates are nominated by their home country’s Fulbright commission and selected by rigorous international competition.

Fulbright New Zealand has been successful in nominating six candidates in the competition’s five rounds to date – the latest being paediatric registrar Nick Fancourt from Auckland, a graduate of the University of Otago – and anticipates fielding more world class applications for this year’s awards.

The closing date for applications to Fulbright New Zealand is 2 May 2011
