U.S. Embassy Algiers is pleased to announce the opening of the Fulbright Foreign Student Program competition for the 2021-2022 academic years. This academic exchange program is funded by the U.S. Department of State and was initiated by U.S. Senator William J. Fulbright in 1946 to increase international educational exchange between Americans and citizens of more than 150 countries worldwide.
The Fulbright Foreign Student Program provides Algerian students and young professionals the opportunity to pursue graduate-level study in the U.S. The award includes funding for tuition and required fees; a book, equipment, and travel allowance; a monthly stipend for room & board; and also a supplemental health and accident coverage plan. All disciplines and fields of study are available to Algerian students. Please note that clinical studies are not permissible under this program.
In addition to academic training, Fulbright scholarships also provide transformative cultural exchange experiences. As Fulbright participants, Algerian students will have the unique opportunity to experience life in the United States and also share Algeria’s unique culture and traditions with Americans.
Program participants will be selected through a merit-based, open competition in which leadership potential, academic excellence, and ability to adjust to life in the U.S. are all considered. Prospective students may apply by following the online application instructions at the U.S. Embassy website
