The U.S. Educational Foundation in Nepal (USEF-Nepal or the Fulbright Commission) welcomes applications from Nepali students for the Fulbright Foreign Student Program (FFSP) for Master’s level study in the U.S. Approximately 4000 foreign students from 155 countries worldwide receive Fulbright scholarships each year.

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational and cultural exchange program, creating connections in a complex and changing world. Led by the U.S. government in partnership with 160 countries worldwide, Fulbright builds lasting connections between the peoples of the U.S. and the people of other countries around the world, building mutual understanding between nations, advancing knowledge across communities, and improving lives around the world. The FFSP provides all expenses (including travel) for a Master’s degree program of up to two years at selected U.S. universities, in any field except Medicine and Nursing.

Depending upon budget availability, approximately five candidates will be nominated by the Fulbright Board in Nepal for the FFSP. Those selected will begin their program in the Fall of 2023.

Women, minorities, people with disabilities, or otherwise disadvantaged candidates and individuals with limited prior international exposure are encouraged to apply.
