The German-American Fulbright Commission (Fulbright Germany) facilitates cross-border international understanding through academic exchange. As the only bi-national exchange organisation in Germany with a focus on the USA, scholarships are awarded for study, research, teaching and further education stays in the USA and Germany.

All information on this programme can be found on the website of the Fulbright Commission under Programs for Germans.

Please note! There are special programme lines for students of universities of applied sciences:

  • Study scholarship for students of universities of applied sciences for a Master's degree in the USA
  • Summer Institutes for students at universities of applied sciences
  • Travel grants


Travel grants

Fulbright Germany travel scholarships cannot be combined with other scholarships if these are awarded for a comparable purpose as the travel scholarship or if they are closed scholarship programmes whose benefits include the financing of travel costs (e.g. DAAD Individual Scholarships, funding within the framework of ISAP, BachelorPlus).
