Make sure the reference reports are submitted promptly. Applicants must submit three references. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that reference reports are submitted by the deadline so that references accompany the application throughout the entire review process. References should be from persons qualified to evaluate your professional work and proposal. At least one of the references should be from a specialist outside your university. References should provide evidence of a scholar's reputation within his/her discipline and must be written in English.

When composing a curriculum vitae, it is important to include

  1. education (universities attended, degrees held)
  2. positions held 
  3. courses taught and other services provided to students and the home institution
  4. publications
  5. other professional activities, such as workshops, seminars and consultations
  6. membership and activities in professional associations
  7. professional honors, awards and fellowships
  8. community service.

The application asks for similar information, but provides limited space for answers. In the curriculum vitae, the applicant should expand upon these topics to display more completely his/her accomplishments.

Preparing the Project Statement

The project statement is the most important aspect of preparing the Fulbright application. Scholars with the most compelling, theoretically sound, well-written, feasible proposals are generally recommended for awards. Sometimes those with outstanding professional achievements assume that a brief, general project statement will be sufficient. But, in order to ensure a more complete application, your proposed project, as well as the strategy for completing it, should be thoroughly explained.

Factors to address in the project statement

  • Clearly define your objectives and the methodology you will employ. Indicate whether you will use interviews, library or archival research, or laboratory experiments to accomplish your project. 
  • Place your project in academic or professional context by referring to leading works by others on the topic if that information is available. 
  • Explain the significance of the project for the field and your own professional development. 
  • Explain why residence in the United States is necessary for accomplishment of the project. Comment, if applicable, on the adequacy or inadequacy of research facilities and library resources in your own country and on the need to use specific collections in the United States
  • Describe arrangements you have made, for affiliation or collaboration. Secure a letter of invitation from a U.S. host institution testifying to the merits and feasibility of the proposal. Scholars who have studied previously in the United States should avoid seeking affiliation at their U.S. alma mater because candidates are encouraged to expand their contacts within the U.S. academic community. 
  • Discuss how your project can be completed within the time period you have available. 
  • Indicate how you will disseminate the results of your research both in the United States and in your home country.


One of the most important requirements of the Fulbright Scholar Program is a formal affiliation at a U.S. university or research institution. When determining which institutions to contact, do not limit yourself to only the most well-known U.S. universities. Many U.S. universities may not have an international reputation, but they often have appropriate facilities for scholars to conduct research. We have observed that scholars placed in these smaller and less renowned institutions often are given greater attention than their colleagues who are affiliated with more well-known universities.
