Fulbright is offering a fully-funded Master’s Degree Scholarships for Palestinians to study in the United States for the academic year 2021-2022. Participants also have the unique opportunity to experience life in the United States and share Palestinian unique culture and traditions with Americans. Participants are chosen through an open, merit-based competition in which leadership potential, academic excellence and the ability to adjust to life in the U.S. are all considered. Once accepted into the Fulbright Program, every Fulbrighter becomes part of a global network of engaged, dedicated Fulbright alumni.


Fulbright Grants provide funding for:

  • Tuition and required fees for graduate study in the U.S.;
  • Book, equipment, and travel allowances;
  • Monthly stipend for room & board;
  • Supplemental health and accident coverage plan;
  • Opportunities to participate in Fulbright Enrichment Programs.


  • Must be a Palestinian resident of West Bank, Jerusalem, or the Gaza Strip;
  • U.S. citizens or green card holders are not eligible to apply;
  • Must reside in country throughout the application, selection and placement process;
  • Must have one year of professional work experience;
  • Must have a strong academic background;
  • Must hold a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 78%, 2.7 or very good;
  • Must be proficient in English and/or able to attend a Long-Term English (LTE) program prior to the start of the study program.
  • Preference is given to students who have little or no previous experience studying or living in the United States;
  • Interested applicants with disabilities are encouraged to apply as are those of all backgrounds.
  • Applications will be accepted in most fields of study, including humanities, social science, science, technology, and engineering. However, master’s programs related to clinical studies, such as medicine and nursing, are not permitted. Medical professionals may apply for academic degrees.
  • Applications and materials must be submitted through the online system.

Application Tips:

  • Write clearly, using professional and understandable language;
  • Demonstrate why you have chosen your field of study and how you are qualified;
  • Proofread all materials for grammatical errors and spelling mistakes;
  • Refrain from using sarcasm, jokes or inappropriate humor;
  • Cite any outside sources used in your essays, as plagiarism will result in disqualification.


  • Selected candidates should be available for interviews in Ramallah/Gaza during July 2020.
  • Fulbright students are subject to the 212e home-country physical presence requirement, which requires students to return to West Bank and Gaza for a cumulative period of two years prior to being eligible for certain U.S. visa categories. (Fulbright alumni may still apply for other visa categories, including those for tourism or additional study in the United States, prior to fulfilling the two-year home residency requirement).
