- Students wishing to participate in the campus review process should submit materials via the Fulbright Online Application portal by the Campus Deadline found above. The campus review process includes a short informational interview with members of Duke faculty and staff, who may provide feedback on application materials. Information from the interview will also help reviewers complete a Campus Committee Evaluation form in support of your application. During this process, your application will be un-submitted in the Fulbright Online portal, and you’ll be able to edit, polish, and update all application components except recommendations. Students with questions about this process are welcome to email Anna.
- Students who miss the campus deadline are still able to apply for a Fulbright, the deadline is in October, see the Fulbright website for the exact date. If you wish to receive feedback on application materials, you may attend any of the Fulbright open advisement sessions. Kindly note that we are only able to offer feedback on a first-come, first-served basis at these sessions. See our NCS Events page for these sessions.
Applicants must be US Citizens by October of the application year. Depending on the country of application, foreign language proficiency may not be expected, so long as it isn't essential for your proposal's feasibility.
