Brief description of the Program

Competition for the Fulbright Research Grant took place during the month of January 2017.

Brief analysis of how the promotion, competition and selection process took place

The applications were reviewed by former and current Fulbright grantees in the correspondent fields of study. Candidates who passed the first evaluation were interviewed also by former and current Fulbright grantees and by officers of the American embassy in Lisbon. Candidates who were recommended for selection were then evaluated by the Board of Directors of the Fulbright Commission who decided the final nomination.
