The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce the opportunity to compete for 2013-2014 Fulbright Student Fellowships/Scholarships for graduate study in the United States leading to a Master’s degree or a Ph.D. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis to qualified candidates or Cambodian students under the auspices of the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Program, subject to the availability of funding.
The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 by the U.S. Congress as a means “to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.” For more than sixty years the Fulbright Program has provided opportunities for foreign nationals to study, teach and pursue research in the U.S.
To be eligible, Cambodian applicants must:
  • Have a strong academic background and a record of excellence in previous studies;
  • Have completed a Bachelor’s degree from a recognized college or university for those applying to study in the U.S. for a Master’s degree program, or have a Master’s degree from a recognized college or university for those applying to study in the U.S. for a Ph.D. program;
  • Be proficient in English (minimum score of 570 on TOEFL or ITP, or 230 on computer-based TOEFL), or 88 on internet based TOEFL, or 7.0 on IELTS;
  • Demonstrate ability to adapt readily to a foreign environment;
  • Be in good health and able to undergo a rigorous study program;
Fulbright Student Fellowship grants provide round-trip transportation to the United States, as well as tuition, fees and living expenses for full-time graduate study. Grant provisions do not include financial support for dependents.
The Fulbright Selection Committee will only accept online applications, which will be due by June 15, 2012.
