The United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF) today announced the opening of its annual competition for Fulbright-Nehru, Fulbright-Kalam and other Fulbright fellowships, which have helped bring the people of India and the United States closer together through opportunities that enrich fellows’ academic, research, teaching and professional capacity.  
 
Alumni of exchange and scholarship programs administered by USIEF have demonstrated strong leadership in several fields, including agriculture, the arts, business, education, the environment, humanities and social sciences, public health, and science and technology, a press release from USIEF said.
 
Outstanding Indian students, academics, teachers, policy makers, administrators, and professionals are encouraged to apply, it said.
 
Diksha Dhar, a Fulbright Nehru Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA said, “while on the Fulbright-Nehru grant, I attended three major conferences in the U.S. and had the opportunity to present my research.  These events provided a platform for me to network and discuss various issues that impact the bilateral ties between India and the U.S.  Currently, I lead an English Language Enhancement Program for tribal teachers and students across 113 government schools in Khunti, Jharkand.”
 
Usha Raman, a Fulbright-Nehru Academic and Professional Excellence Scholar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA said, “while on the Fulbright-Nehru grant, I was able to make considerable progress on two research papers as a result of access to excellent library resources and a peer group with whom I could share ideas.”
 
The release said USIEF expected to offer approximately 100 Fulbright-Nehru and six Fulbright-Kalam Climate Fellowships to Indian applicants in 2019.  Fellowship details are posted on the USIEF website (www.usief.org.in) and the first application deadline is June 15, 2018.  
 
Applicants may send any queries to ip@usief.org.in or contact one of the USIEF offices in New Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, or Mumbai, the release added.
