CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: 2025 – 2026 FULBRIGHT FOREIGN STUDENT PROGRAM

The Public Diplomacy Section of the U.S. Embassy in Chad is pleased to announce the annual competition for the Fulbright Foreign Student Program.

Recent graduates, especially women, are encouraged to apply. Although candidates for PhD programs may apply, priority will be given to candidates for Master’s programs.

Good candidates with limited English proficiency may be considered for the Fulbright Long-Term English (LTE) Program.  Nominees must be available to begin their LTE training in January or March 2025. Candidates MUST be seeking a Master’s degree in their current field. Individuals seeking Ph.D., MBA, Law, or non-degree programs are not eligible for the LTE component. Applicants in the fields or sub-fields of English, TEFL, and Linguistics must have a minimum TOEFL score of 65 to apply for LTE.

Successful candidates will be funded for a maximum of two years. All awards are contingent upon approval by the Fulbright Scholarship Board, availability of funds, and successful academic placement.
