S&T program contacts abroad at Fulbright Commissions and in the Public Affairs Sections of U.S. Embassies provide critical services to Fulbright S&T Fellows during all stages of the program. The role of these important staff vary from country to country as they provide support by announcing the Award competition; actively recruiting potential applicants; screening applications; providing support during the student placement process; advising S&T Fellows after their arrival in the U.S.; working with U.S. based program staff on special initiatives, such as the Fulbright S&T Capstone (see below); and maintaining contact with program alumni.

The U.S.-based Fulbright S&T team wishes to ensure that overseas contacts have the information and resources needed to best assist your candidates.
