The Selection Committee, composed of members of the Board of Directors of the Fulbright Commission Portugal and with the participation of a representative from FLAD, appointed four candidates from various scientific fields for this second edition of the open call:

Congratulations to the four new Fulbright/FLAD fellows, who will start their research programs in the United States as early as October of 2021.

This partnership between Fulbright Portugal and FLAD is designed to support master’s students at Portuguese universities who have planned, within the framework of their coursework, for a period of research at a U.S. university or research center for a period of 4 months.

If you have not applied for this edition, we have good news, we expect a new edition of this open call for the academic year of 2022/2023.
