Fulbright Bulgaria offers fellowships for U.S. students, MA/PhD candidates, young professionals and artists to conduct research, study or exercise their talents for one academic year. The award is for motivated candidates who are interested in conducting research projects with an academic, artistic or non-governmental Bulgarian institution, independent library or field research, special projects in the social or life sciences, or a combination of such activities.
Fulbright Bulgaria also offers joint grants with neighboring countries:
Bulgaria-Greece Fulbright Joint Research Award
Bulgaria-Romania Fulbright Study/Research Award
Joint grants give researchers the opportunity to work on a cross-country project, spending one semester in Bulgaria and one in Greece or Romania. These grants are especially suitable for candidates interested in archeology, history and art history, Balkan studies, trans-border/emigration studies, economics, tourism, preservation of cultural heritage, political science, social sciences, classical studies, and the arts. Well-qualified candidates will be considered at all degree levels and in all fields.
For U.S. students without a precise research focus who would like to experience Bulgaria, Fulbright Bulgaria also offers 30 English Teaching Assistantships in Bulgarian language high schools.
The 2016-2017 Fulbright U.S. Student competition is now open. Competition Deadline is October 13, 2015, 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. To apply, visit http://www.us.fulbrightonline.org.
