Additional Eligibility Criteria:

U.S. citizenship
- Applicants must hold U.S. citizenship at the time of application. Permanent residence is not sufficient.

Residency abroad
- Applicants who have resided abroad for five or more consecutive years in the six-year period preceding the application deadline are ineligible. A period of nine months or more during a calendar year constitutes a full year.

Degree and/or Experience
- Award descriptions specify where a Ph.D., other terminal degree, or comparable professional qualifications are required. (Please refer to this list of common terminal degrees.) Current faculty, administrators, and experienced professionals are encouraged to apply. Postdoc awards are open to scholars who will have received a doctoral degree (Ph.D., J.D., M.D., Ed.D., etc.) within five years of the fellowship start date. Degree conferment before the start of the award is mandatory. Graduate or doctoral students seeking funding to complete their degrees are ineligible. Recent college graduates with limited professional experience are ineligible and should instead apply to the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.

Prior Fulbright Scholar Awards
- Recipients of a Fulbright Scholar award are eligible to apply for another award two years after the date of completion of the previous award. Recipients of a Fulbright Specialist Program grant are not required to adhere to the two-year waiting period before applying for a Fulbright Scholar award. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received a Scholar award. This does not include recipients of a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program grant who started their grant during the 2019-20 academic year, and were not able to complete their grants due to COVID-19.

Department of State employees and their immediate family
- Employees and their immediate families (i.e. spouses and dependent children) of the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development, and of public or private organizations under contract to the U.S. Department of State are ineligible to apply for a Fulbright award until one year after termination of such employment.
