About the Program

The US 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 US. Approximately 4000 foreign students from 155 countries worldwide receive Fulbright scholarships each year. 

The Fulbright Program is the US government’s flagship international educational and cultural exchange program, creating connections in a complex and changing world. Led by the US government in partnership with 160 countries worldwide, Fulbright builds lasting connections between the peoples of the US and the peoples 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 US 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 August-September 2022. Students who completed their schooling and degree from out of valley, minorities, and people from under-served populations are strongly encouraged to apply.
