FUTURE Scholarships offer funding for full tuition/visiting researcher fees at any U.S. institution, as well as travel and living costs. By facilitating innovative, impact-focused projects, this program seeks to improve the health, well-being, and prosperity of Australians.

If you are interested in a scholarship for study or research at a U.S. institution, please visit the  Fulbright website for more information.

Note: Although these prestigious scholarships are not eligible for HERDC reportable research income it is important that we (FedUni & Research Services) are aware of any potential applications, and that it has institutional approval.

Why not HERDC reportable research income: funds for this scheme will be provided directly to the successful applicant and managed via Fulbright.

We strongly encourage potential applicants to review all information carefully including eligibility, selection criteria, timeline, FAQs, and most importantly the application form itself and its guidelines, and to start their applications as soon as possible. The application form and required information is extensive and will take some time for completing.
