When applications are received by IREX through the Online Application System, each application is screened for technical eligibility. After confirming that applicants meet the eligibility criteria, an independent committee of experts reviews the applications.
The independent committee reads and reviews applications, and makes nomination recommendations. The Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board approves all final nominations.
Applications are evaluated on overall quality, the applicant’s qualifications, the benefit of the program for both the applicant and the applicant’s school, and clear demonstration of educational leadership.
Additional consideration will be given to applicants who:
work in high-need schools or districts, defined as having a student population that:
have at least five years of full-time teaching experience in the United States, a U.S. territory, or a school associated with the Department of Defense Education Activity;
All applicants will receive notification of a selection decision by email, whether they have been selected or not.
