The Fulbright-British Heart Foundation Scholar Award provides an opportunity for a postdoctoral academic researcher to pursue a period of research into biomedical or clinical aspects of cardiovascular disease at any higher education institution in the USA.

This award covers any appropriate 12-month research project and welcomes applications from clinical and non-clinical postdoctoral academic researchers.

  • Membership of an extensive Fulbright Alumni network after grant completion

Eligibility requirements: Applicants must hold or expect to receive a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, Master's, PhD or equivalent professional training or experience in a relevant area before departure to the US.
