The Fulbright Indigenous Scholarship is for an Indigenous scholar to undertake a research or study program in the United States, and is available in any field of academic study. For a Postgraduate this may be accredited towards an Australian higher degree, or to enrol in a U.S. higher degree.
The scholarship was originally established in cooperation with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) in 1993 and is now supported by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. As fitting with the Fulbright mission, the Fulbright Indigenous Scholarship was established to recognise Indigenous leaders’ commitment to achieving excellence, while seeking an international perspective and collaboration through their studies/research.
Benefits, rights and responsibilities, eligibility criteria and duration of the Fulbright Indigenous Scholarship at the Postgraduate level are as per the Postgraduate General Category.
Applicants must be Australian citizens, and current Australian Postgraduate Scholarship holders are encouraged to apply.
Further information and application forms can be obtained from the Fulbright website below.
