Fulbright is one of several United States Cultural Exchange Programs to improve intercultural relations, intercultural competence and cultural diplomacy, between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, skills, and knowledge. Via the program, competitively-selected students of other countries may receive scholarships or grants to study, conduct research, teach, or exercise their talents in the United States. The program was founded by the United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946 and is considered to be one of the most widely recognized and prestigious scholarships in the world. The program provides approximately 8,000 grants annually – roughly 1,600 to U.S. students, 1,200 to U.S. scholars, 4,000 to foreign students, 900 to foreign visiting scholars, and several hundred to teachers and professionals.

International students who want to study in the USA should apply for the scholarship in their home country and after a long process, if accepted, they can pursue a Masters or PhD program in the United States.

The Fulbright Program has the commissions in 49 of the over 160 countries with which it has bilateral partnerships. These foundations are funded jointly by the U.S. and partner governments. The role of the Fulbright Commissions is to plan and implement educational exchanges; recruit and nominate candidates, both domestic and foreign, for fellowships; designate qualified local educational institutions to host Fulbrighters, and support incoming U.S. Fulbrighters while engaging with alumni.

Fulbright scholarships are available to Indonesian citizens to undertake graduate degree study or advanced research at a US university in a variety of fields.

The MA and PhD scholarships support two and three years of graduate study respectively at a US university. The Visiting Scholar Program allows an Indonesian holding a doctoral degree to research for three to six months at an American university.

Selection preference will be given to candidates who have not had extensive recent US experience, for example, those who have previously received a Fulbright scholarship. Candidates will be considered without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, political affiliation, marital status, status as a parent, or sexual orientation.

Eligible Fields of Study

Fulbright grants may be used for study or research in most disciplines and fields of study except medicine related to patient care or clinical patient contact. Proposals in humanities, arts, and social sciences, and in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and health are equally welcome. Particularly welcome are applications in STEM fields that focus on environmental preservation, alternative energy exploration, or climate change mitigation.

Required Tests

At the time of application to AMINEF only a TOEFL Institutional Testing Program (ITP) or IELTS score is required. If you are later selected for an award, you must then take the official TOEFL iBT (Internet-based TOEFL) test, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) for all fields except law and business, or the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) for business administration, finance, and accounting.
