About Fulbright

Lancaster shares the Fulbright vision, a world where there are no obstacles to learning, understanding and collaboration. Lancaster provides support to students and academics in order to make the most of Fulbright opportunities available.

Opportunities in the USA

Fulbright offers programmes, advice and events for UK students, academics and professionals interested in researching, teaching and studying at an accredited HE institution in the USA.

Applying for an Award in the USA

Fulbright offers scholarships, also known as 'Fulbright Awards'. This means UK students can apply to participate in a range of programmes including funded postgraduate degrees, short-term programmes and research in the USA. UK academic staff can make the most of Fulbright by applying for a scholarship to further research and teaching within the USA.

If you would like support in applying for a Fulbright Award in the USA, contact the Global Engagement Team. Lancaster University is committed to support its students and academics through the Fulbright application process. Our Fulbright membership status enables Lancaster University academics and students to benefit from exclusive workshops and events as part of this partnership.

Fulbright is all about cultural exchange, and I’m excited to get the chance to engage with US culture and use what I learn there to inform my ongoing work on dementia representation in the UK
