Entries open for Fulbright Foreign Student Programme

The US Embassy in Namibia is now accepting applications for the 2024 Fulbright Foreign Student Programme.

The programme funds two years of study towards a master’s degree at a US university. 

Selected Fulbright foreign students would begin their master’s coursework in the United States of America at the beginning of the US 2024-25 academic year. 

Namibian candidates who hold a four-year university degree are invited to apply. 

The deadline is 30 June 2023.

Established in 1946, this programme sends Namibians to the US each year on fully-funded or partially-funded fellowships for master’s and doctorate-level degrees. 

Namibians who have benefitted from previous US Embassy-sponsored programmes are not eligible to apply. 

Although priority will be given to applications in the following fields, outstanding applications in other fields might be considered: education management; health (medicine and dental excluded); environmental studies; law, democracy and human rights; science, technology, engineering and math; energy and agriculture.

Applicants must be Namibian citizens and hold a valid passport issued by Namibian authorities.

Participants must have four years of university and a bachelor’s or honorary degree by the time of departure and possess a sufficient level of English for the intended study.

They are also required to take standardised tests (GRE, GMAT and TOEFL).

Nominees with extensive or recent US experience will be considered. 

Applications must be completed online at
