The Fulbright Programme

The J. William Fulbright Commission is an intergovernmental Czech-American organization established to support educational, scientific and cultural exchanges between the Czech Republic and the United States of America through scholarship programs and advisory and information services. The commission was established in 1991 on the basis of an agreement between the governments of the Czech Republic and the USA.

The main task of the Fulbright Commission is the administration of government scholarships for study, research and teaching in the USA for Czech citizens and, conversely, for American scholarship holders at academic institutions in the Czech Republic. The Fulbright Commission also operates a Counseling Center that provides information on study opportunities in the US and free counseling.

The basic prerequisites for applying for a scholarship are Czech citizenship, permanent residence in the Czech Republic and a very good knowledge of English.

The condition is a Ph.D. degree, successful scientific or university teaching activity, an invitation from the American side and a very good command of English. The length of stay depends on the submitted project and ranges from three to ten months in the relevant academic year. More at:
