     Fulbright Thai Graduate Scholarship (Open Competition Scholarship Program)

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The national competition sets the high standards that give a Fulbright scholarship its fine reputation. Academic and professional credentials, importance of the fields to Thailand, commitment to return and strength of character are the prime considerations for selecting applicants.

Up to 7 grants are available annually, depending upon budget appropriations, for study towards a Masters or gradute degree in the United States in a broad variety fields with the exception of medicine, public health, nursing, and allied subjects with no clinical practices are eligible.

Successful candidates will be eligible to receive funding from the Foundation for the actual costs of the first year of the master’s program (not exceeding $35,000). However, there is a possibility that the Foundation would provide an additional fund for the first year, depending on the budget of this fiscal year.

Grants are normally for one academic year. Grantees who require more than one year to complete the master's degree are eligible for further funding of up to $17,500 for their study program in the United States beyond the initial year. The second year grant will normally be provided on a case by case basis depending on reasonable progress towards the planned degree.

Grants are intended to cover costs of tuition and fees, books and educational supplies, maintenance allowance, and insurance coverage. Additionally, the Foundation will cover round-trip international travel expenses (economy class) between Thailand and the United States.  Some of the grants may be combined with tuition waivers or other financial aid from appropriate institutions.
