Profiles of Admitted Fulbright Scholars 2016

Posted by on October 27, 2015 in Fulbright Pakistan | 52 comments

Finally the 2016 Fulbright selections for MS and PhD programs have been finally made and every principal and alternate candidate has been informed of the decision. Those who have not yet heard from the Fulbright should certainly be sure that they have not been successful this year and now they must look into alternative options. Unsuccessful candidates can apply next year as well but I generally advise students to first explore other options such as applying directly to graduate schools in US or other possible countries of interest.

As for the successful candidates, surprisingly the number of those admitted from LUMS has fallen significantly. Over these past few days 17 of my students have shared their profiles and the remaining have been shared by other generous Fulbright scholars – I requested some of them to share their profiles with me so that other aspirants can gain some benefit from their data.

Here are some profiles that I have been able to compile so far and I am in the process of compiling a few more that I will be posting to this page over this week. So please keep checking back to see more updates:

In case you have been selected for the Fulbright 2016 cohort and are filling to share your profile for others to benefit, please fill this form. We all will be really obliged.
