In detail

The Fulbright US Student programme offers funding to US citizens to support individually designed study and research projects. As part of the Award, students gain a full cultural experience; meeting, working, living with and learning from people in the UK.

Fulbright encourages direct interaction on an individual basis across all aspects of life so that recipients gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints, beliefs, and experiences. They interact in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.

There are two types of Fulbright Awards available:

  • The All Discipline Awards, which apply to any master's or doctoral degree at any recognised UK university.
  • The Fulbright Lancaster University Award in STEM, which applies to Master's degrees offered by our Faculty of Science and Technology.
