World University Network (WUN) and the Fulbright Commission have joined together to create the WUN/Fulbright Program to provide additional opportunities for overseas study in the UK. The five UK member universities of WUN will waive the tuition fees of Fulbright scholars coming to their campus from one of their partner universities (UW-Madison is one of the consortium universities).
The UK member universities are: University of Bristol, of Leeds, of Sheffield, of Southampton, and York. The Fulbright Award for graduate study typically provides round trip travel, tuition fees and a general living allowance of about 10,000 pounds, health benefits package, small book and research allowance. The program comes into effect for academic year 2008/09; those interested would apply fall 2007.
These Fulbright/World University Network (WUN) grants are open only to students who are enrolled at one of the WUN consortium universities are in addition to the roughly 40 Fulbright-IIE US Student grants to the UK.
Applicants will follow the Fulbright-IIE application procedures. More information on the application process can be found at the Fellowship Office website: www.intl-institute.wisc.edu/fellow under “Announcements, Fulbright-IIE.”
