As the COVID-19 situation evolves, all U.S. Department of State’s Exchange Programs, including the Fulbright Program, were suspended March 13 – All Fulbright exchanges worldwide will remain paused until further notice.

In these unprecedented and difficult times, the Fulbright Commission in Portugal remains committed to doing everything we can to support our grantees, and we are in close contact with them. Their health and safety, as always, remain our number one priority.

The Fulbright team in Portugal is now working from home but completely available to answer your questions by email or by phone –
