Fulbright Student (Pre-Doctoral) Awards
Each year the Nepal Fulbright Commission awards from six to eight 10-month fellowships to recent American graduates (a minimum of a bachelors degree is required) and to graduate students (Masters and Ph.D. degree-seeking candidates) in any field for study and research in Nepal.

Do I need to already be proficient in Nepali or other local languages to apply for a student research grant?
It is not a requirement.
Do I need to have a letter of affiliation from a host institution in Nepal, and can the Commission arrange one for me?
The letter is a requirement. It is the responsibility of the candidate to secure an affiliation, and the Commission cannot assist in that process.
