The Fulbright Commission is a Czech-American governmental organization founded with the mission to enhance educational, scientific and cultural exchanges through scholarship programs and advising and information services.
The prestigious Fulbright Program sponsored by U.S. and Czech governments provides U.S. and Czech citizens with the opportunity to study, teach, or conduct research in the partner country.
The Fulbright Program is open to all fields be it Liberal Arts or Hard Sciences (except for MBA, LLM and Clinical Medicine).
Proposals in American Studies and Central European studies are welcome as well as proposals studying intercultural or interdisciplinary aspects.
The academic quality of proposals is decisive for obtaining the award. Preference may be given to those without prior experience in the partner country, provided the overall quality of submitted projects is comparable.
The Commission and specialists in relevant fields review applications for all programs.
Applications from Czech citizens for awards in the Fulbright Scholar Program, Fulbright-Masaryk Program, and Proshek-Fulbright Program are subject to a peer-review process (using experts from universities, research institutions, and foreign experts). For each program a selection committee, appointed by the Board, interviews the candidates.
The Board, taking into account the recommendations of the selection committee, availability of funds, and other program requirements, announces the final nomination of Fulbright grantees in the Czech Republic and also acts as the body reviewing the nominations of U.S. applicants.
The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarships Board, nominated by the U.S. President and located in Washington, DC, is the final institution approving all Fulbright grants.
