The U.S. Embassy in Moldova is pleased to announce the 2015 annual competitions for the Fulbright Scholar Program, the Fulbright Faculty Development Program, the Fulbright Foreign Student Program and the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program for the 2016-2017 academic year.
The Fulbright Scholar Program awards non-degree grants to senior researchers, university lecturers, or experts in various fields who have a doctoral degree, or equivalent professional experience, to conduct research in the United States.
The Fulbright Faculty Development Program provides Moldovan junior university professors who have at least two years of professional experience an opportunity to explore curriculum development and teaching methodology in the United States.
The Fulbright Foreign Student Program enables young professionals from Moldova to study for one year or longer at U.S. universities to pursue Master’s level study in any field except medicine. (Program availability contingent on confirmation of funding.)
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a one-year, full scholarship program offered to mid-career professionals who have a proven track record of leadership, public service commitment, and the capacity to take full advantage of a self-defined program of independent study at one of the leading universities in the United States. The program awards a certificate from the U.S. Government, but it is not designed to deliver an advanced degree.
