New Competition is now open for Jordanian alumni from the Foreign Student Scholarship Award

A new round of Fulbright Alumni Development Grants competition is now open for applications. We encourage you to apply for a chance to receive up to $1,000 to participate in a virtual professional development opportunity of your choice.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alumni Development Grant (ADG) application, eligibility and grant requirements will look slightly different.  For this round, only virtual professional development activities will be considered for funding and the option of in-person participation will not be offered. As usual, the proposed ADG activity should be a professional development activity, for example attending an online training, presenting at a virtual conference or participating in a collaborative research project. This short-term activity must take place anytime between February and August 2022.
