Fulbright Grant for Bruneians

I received the following information from the US Embassy. Hope it will come in useful to readers.



The Embassy of the United States of America is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Fulbright grant for graduate study. This prestigious flagship international educational exchange program, sponsored by the U.S. Government, is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of Fulbright eligible nations.

The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, and is administered by the Department of State and the Institute of International Education (IIE).

ChargĂ© d’Affaires a.i., Alexander L. Barrasso noted “I hope Bruneians will take advantage of this great opportunity and apply. The Fulbright grant is a unique program for Bruneians to obtain higher education at some of our finest institutions and experience the diversity of America and its people.”

Prospective candidates (Brunei citizens or permanent residents) are invited to apply for the prestigious scholarship. This award is for advanced students preferably in their early to mid career interested in pursuing a Master’s degree for study commencing in August, 2012. Details on the application procedure including forms can be obtained from the U.S. Embassy website at http://brunei.usembassy.gov. The deadline for submitting the preliminary application form is April 30, 2011

Since the program’s reactivation in 2004, there have been a total of seven Bruneians who have received the Fulbright grant. Former Fulbright Scholarship recipients include Pg. Dr. Hishamuddin Pg Badaruddin, Mohd Yusra bin Hj Salleh, Vivi Jafiana DP Hj Jaafar, Zul Fakhri bin Maidy, Salehkamal Badarudin, Haji Sofi Hasni bin Hj Sharbini and Sumardi bin Hj Abdul Hamid.
