THE EMBASSY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Announces the Annual Competition for the Fulbright & Humphrey Exchange Programs from December 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018

Information and application form can be found at : https://bf.usembassy.gov/

Types of Programs :

1. Fulbright Visiting Student (FVS)

For scholars and professionals who would like to pursue a Master’s degree or PhD in the United States (1-2 year grants). Candidates must have a high level of English – sufficient to successfully pursue full-time graduate-level study in the United States (i.e., a TOEFL score of at least 575).

2. Fulbright Visiting Student – Long Term English (FVS-LTE)

This program is similar to the Fulbright Visiting Students Program discussed in item 1, except candidates can have English language training in the United States for up to eight months before their Master’s degree program. The program is only available to candidates seeking a Master’s degree and must have a TOEFL score of at least 520.

3. Fulbright African Research Scholar Program (ARSP)

This program is intended for university faculty members or individuals working at independent research centers, museums, or other cultural institutions that have educational and research objectives. This program allows selected applicants to go to the United States to conduct research for three-to-nine months during the academic year. There is also a special program for persons who desire to do AIDS-related research or professional development in the United States. The disciplines eligible for the special AIDS program include : Sociology and social work, anthropology, education, economics, law, public administration, communications, art, theater, medical sciences, biological sciences, and psychology. A good command of English is essential, but no minimum TOEFL score is required.

4. Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program

For mid-level professionals who are moving up into leadership positions in the public or private sector. This program offers an opportunity to develop one’s leadership skills and learn the latest in their particular field. Fellows spend approximately nine months in the United States taking graduate-level courses at a U.S. university, participating in long-term leadership development programs and engaging with professional peers from around the world in non-academic professional development activities. This is not an academic degree program. The goal is general professional development. Candidates must already have an undergraduate university degree, at least five years of professional experience, and be proficient in English (TOEFL score of at least 550).

5. Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (Contact kaboreye@state.gov for application form)

This Program brings international teachers to the United States for a six-week program to take academic seminars for professional development at a host university and to observe and share their expertise with teachers and students at the host university and at local primary and secondary schools. Applicants must be current secondary-level, full-time teachers of English, English as a Foreign Language (EFL), math, science, or social studies including special education teachers in those subjects at institutions serving primarily a local population. Applicants must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent and have completed at least five years of full-time teaching by the start of the program. Applicants should be able to demonstrate English language proficiency by attaining a minimum score of 450 on the TOEFL.

• Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of Burkina Faso.
• Application forms must be completed and returned to the American Embassy (SERVICE CAC) by January 31, 2018.

Public information sessions are held every Wednesday from 15:00 to 17:00, beginning Wednesday, December 6, 2017 and continuing through January 31, 2017 at the American Embassy Ouaga 2000. (Cell phones & computers not allowed.)

  • Thanks...! I’m 21 years old and I’m interested.Iwanna know what are the conditions.I have BAC and I want to study English to joseph ki zerbo university

    • Ibrahim,
      You are not eligible to apply right now.
      Go ahead and pursue your studies at Joseph Ki Zerbo. Once you have your Bachelor’s degree (BAC + 4), you will be eligible to apply. The scholarship requires that you have at least a Bachelor (BAC + 4).

      A word of wisdom : Start by getting rid of expression such as "Iwanna know". These are very informal and will not help you get to the level of proficiency required to win the Fulbright Scholarship.

    • Thanks ...!I’m sorry for my expression.please I have another questions.my parents wan that I travel to USA for my studies and we do not know how to start .my mother was to the embassy last month for informations.but until today we do not know how to start for the VISA

    • Ibrahim, the information you are getting from the Embassy is a good start. Get a list of Universities in the US. Sit down and look at their programs carefully. Choose one program that you like. I suggest you start by applying to an Intensive English Program (IEP). Once you are in the US you will study English and once you reach a level of proficiency that is acceptable you can apply to an academic program to study for a degree.

      Good luck !

  • My parents want that.I’m sorry to.my English is very poor.

  • please i came for visa interview to us but was not qualified to be granted a visa.i want to know how long can i make before applying for new interview. Thanks

    • Usually, you wait at least six months to re-apply after a denial. However, if you have fixed the problem that caused the embassy to deny you the visa you can re-apply at any time.

  • Bonjour, je souhaiterais postuler au programme "Fulbright Visiting Student – Long Term English (FVS-LTE)"
    Merci de bien vouloir m’envoyer le lien
