With a spirit of innovation, a strong student-centred mission and a commitment to excellent teaching, Elon provides a national model for high-impact educational experiences. Elon develops graduates who have a deep sense of their roles as global citizens and an intense passion for making a difference.

  • Membership of an extensive Fulbright Alumni network after grant completion

Eligibility requirements: Applicants must be UK academics who hold or expect to receive a PhD (or equivalent professional training or experience) in a relevant area before departure to the US. Those who hold US citizenship may not apply for a UK Scholar Award from the US-UK Fulbright Commission.
