Brief description of the Program

Competitions for the Fulbright Grant for Scholars and for the Fulbright / Camões Institute Grant for scholars, took place during the month of October 2014.

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.
