The LBJ School's Fellowship for Fulbright Alumni
The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, at the University of Texas at Austin, has created a competitive fellowship opportunity specifically for Fulbright alumni who apply and are admitted to the School's newest degree program, the Master of Global Policy Studies (MGPS). Qualified applicants will be eligible for the LBJ School Fulbright Alumni Fellowship, which covers tuition and fees for all four semesters of the master's degree program. The LBJ School Fulbright Alumni Fellowship was created in recognition of the unique international perspectives that former participants in the Fulbright exchange program can offer to the student body and the value that these perspectives bring to the entire university community.
The LBJ School will fund up to two Fulbright Alumni Fellowships per entering class; one designated for a U.S . Fulbright fellow who studied abroad through the Fulbright U.S Student Program, and one for a foreign Fulbright fellow who studied in the United States through the Fulbright Foreign Student Program. To be eligible for consideration, Fulbright alumni should have completed their undergraduate program of study and received the equivalent of a bachelor's degree, have completed their international exchange as a Fulbright fellow, and meet the academic requirements for admission to the LBJ School's Master of Global Policy Studies. Students holding a doctoral degree are not eligible.
To be considered for the LBJ School Fulbright Alumni Fellowship, Fulbright alumni should apply for admission to the LBJ School's Master of Global Policy Studies program, include a reference to the dates and country of their Fulbright experience in their resumes, and provide information on the impact of their Fulbright experiences in their essays, which are required components of the School's application process. No additional application form is required.
