Citizens of Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu seeking study opportunities in the United States can now do so.
The U-S government has announced its flagship education exchange program, the William J. Fullbright graduate scholarship program for 2015, inviting citizens of these three countries to apply.
Applications will close on May 16.
The successful candidate will be able to earn a Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Public Administration, or a Master of Law degree.
Scholarship recipients receive a tuition grant for their course work and a monthly stipend to cover living expenses at their host institution. Recipients also receive roundtrip transportation and health benefits.
In addition, recipients may also attend special enrichment activities through out their program.
These activities are excellent opportunities to network with fellow international Fulbright recipients and to interact with prominent Americans across a range of professional fields.
The selected candidate may be required to travel to the United States as early as August 2015, for pre-academic programs.
Meantime, only online applications will be accepted.
Meantime, applications are also opened for the 2015 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program for Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu citizens.
The ten-month fellowship consists of academic coursework and an internship in a relevant professional organization.
