USIEF introduces New Fellowship Programs

USIEF presents Recent Fellowship Programme

The Fulbright - Nehru Fellowship Programme complements bilateral efforts between India and the United States and increases mutual understanding between people of the two countries, said Diya Dutt, Deputy Director, United States - India Educational Foundation (USIEF).

Addressing a workshop for potential Fellowship applicants, at the University of Madras here on Monday, Dutt said "The number of applicants from Chennai is increasing." The Fulbright scholars and experts, who addressed the workshop, gave tips on the screening process, how to improve the applications and make research proposals. The USIEF recently announced the Fulbright - Nehru and other Fulbright Fellowships open to Indian citizens for the academic year 2010 - 2011.

This year, the USIEF has introduced a new Fellowship Programme, the Fulbright - Nehru Post - Doctoral Research Fellowships for Ph.D holders from India, to strengthen their research capacities.

Among the various categories of grants, the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship is offered for mid - level policy planners and administrators. The Doctoral, Professional, Post - Doctoral, Senior Research and Visiting Lecturer grants benefit faculty and scholars working in universities and colleges, and the Fulbright - Nehru Master's Fellowships for Leadership Development are offered to students to pursue a Master's degree at selected colleges and universities in the United States.

The Programme funding has doubled and the number of grants has tripled since 2008, when the Indian government became an equal partner in funding the Programme.

The deadline for receipt of applications for most categories is 15th July, 2010. Green card holders are not eligible to apply for the Programme.
