Is TOEFL Required before the Fulbright Deadline?
The answer is No. You do not need to give the TOEFL test at the time you apply to the Fulbright. However if you are short-listed for the Fulbright interview which is due in September then you will be required to register for the TOEFL and take the proof of TOEFL registration with you to the interview. In case you have already given the TOEFL within the last two years, then you can simply take a copy of your official score with you.
There is no minimum TOEFL score requirement for Fulbright – it actually depends where the Fulbright and IIE end up applying on your behalf. If they requirement of your programs is 90, then that would be your target. To be safe, try to keep your TOEFL above the 100 mark on the IBT exam.
