Each year, applicants from all across Pakistan apply for the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship. This year too thousands of Pakistani applicants will apply by May 2014 for the Fulbright program that will start in August 2015.

Like every year, this year too I will be asked the same question by almost all Fulbright applicants; “I study in field abcd, am I eligible to apply for Fulbright?” Unlike last year where I was not able to come up with a list of eligible fields for the Fulbright scholarship program, this year I have decided to vest some time in this effort. Although every field is eligible except for clinical medicine but still I will try to elucidate the eligible fields for the Fulbright Pakistan 2015 program.
Note: There is a high preference in the fields of Agriculture, Energy, Water and Public Policy!

Because of the limited number of grants, the Fulbright application is a stringent and rigorous process. Therefore, you should begin planning as early as 1.5 to 2 years before you intend to go to the US in order to have ample time to effectively prepare for all the pre-requisites of your Fulbright application.
