The U.S. Embassy in Kingston is now accepting applications for the 2014/2015 Fulbright Graduate Student Program. The Fulbright Graduate Student Program fellowships are awarded to qualified graduates with a first class or upper second class honors Bachelor’s degree who wish to continue their studies, for either a Masters or PhD degree in the humanities, social sciences or other specified disciplines, in the United States. This very competitive program will only consider Jamaican-citizen graduates of tertiary institutions. Persons with “green cards” (alien registration cards), or already pursuing studies at a U.S. university, or who are residents in the United States, are not eligible to apply for these Awards. Fulbright recipients must return to Jamaica on completion of their studies in the U.S. and must spend at least two years in Jamaica before they can be eligible for consideration to emigrate to the U.S.
To apply, persons are required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) dependent on the field of study. Applicants should create an account and electronically submit the application, GRE or GMAT scores and three letters of recommendation to be considered for an interview no later than Friday, May 31, 2013. Interviews for short-listed candidates will take place in July 2013.
