Posted by on February 18, 2015 in Fulbright Scholarship | 61 comments

Many Fulbright Applicants in Pakistan ask me various queries regarding filling the Fulbright application form. I have posted a completely filled sample Fulbright application form for 2016 Fulbright application. Please note that I have scrambled the data in this form to keep it anonymous. The purpose of this form is to inform you on what type of information goes in what sections.

    Assalamu Alaikum Omar,

    In the form, they have said that it should be “typewritten”. I got informed that what it means is to be filled using ‘type writer’, but seeing ur sample, you have filled it on computer. Got little confused …

      Is the application form of Fulbright same for all the years or the personal statement questions vary with the year? In simple words..will the personal statement questions of 2016 be different from the questions of 2015 or 2014?

    Right at the end of Fulbright application, there is a checklist requiring attested O’Level documentation. Does that mean notarised stamped ones?


    • Avatar

      That means attested from either your school or the British council

    I am doctor , is my house job period counted as experience? and secondly does having no experience after house job wards for one year pose a negative impact on your application? as I have been busy preparing for certain exams and have not been successful yet in getting any job.

    • Avatar

      Yes it is counted. No experience afterwards is negative.

    Hi! I was wondering whether if I should take the GMAT before applying for Fulbright. Can I take GMAT later after I have got the interview? And on another question if i decided to take GMAT do I have to take GRE as well since i am currently majoring in Business Management

    • Avatar

      Hello – Yes you can take the GMAT after the interview. If you are applying for Fulbright you must take the GRE. GRE is required for Fulbright.

      If you plan to take dependents then you must bear their cost. So write that you will pay for them.
