The Application Form

You can download the appropriate application form from USEFI's site http://www.fulbright-india.org/ or e-mail a request to info@fulbright-india.org specifying the grant category. USEFI will e-mail you the file as an attachment.

The completed applications (including enclosures, if any) must be submitted through the appropriate administrative authority (Vice-Chancellor / Registrar / Director / Principal) to the USEFI Office within your region.

Applications must reach USEFI by the specified deadline date, or the following Monday if the deadline falls on a weekend.

In the case of Central or State government employees, a copy of the completed application should be sent through proper channel to the "Director (U-4), Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD), Shastri Bhavan, New Delhi 110011", to reach the Ministry two weeks before the application deadline. Such candidates are advised to send an advance copy (a photocopy of the complete application) along with a copy of the forwarding note to the Ministry of Human Resource Development, to USEFI, New Delhi, well before the application deadline.

Completed applications should not be sent as e-mail attachments. To confirm receipt of applications, applicants should call or email the USEFI office in their region, or enclose a self-addressed post-card along with their applications.

 

Selection Process

Expert Committees will review all eligible applications. Applicants recommended by the committees will be required to appear for an interview by USEFI's National Selection Committee in New Delhi. In case of certain fellowship categories, applicants may be required to appear for regional level interviews, at their own expense, prior to the national interviews in New Delhi.

All candidates called for interviews (Regional/National) will have to bring along the originals of degrees/mark sheets/ certificates (starting with the school leaving certificate), and any other documents that they may wish to present before the interview committee.

Decisions taken by the various committees in connection with the selection process will be final and requests for reconsideration will NOT be entertained.
