1. Brief description of the Program
Grants:
 Fulbright Research Grant– all fields of study.
 Fulbright Research Grant – Public Health
2. Brief analysis of how the promotion, competition and selection process took place
(planning, outreach, media, calendars, pool of evaluators, etc).
Competitions took place during the month of January 2016.
During the competition period we received email requests for information about these
grants from 87 students.
We recorded a webinar about the application process that was viewed 97 times. This
webinar consisted of a full explanation of the grants conditions and requirements. We
showed each and every page of the application form, highlighting the questions where
applicants usually show more difficulty and describing where and how the additional
documents should be uploaded.
From the 37 applications received, 3 were ineligible (two candidates had already a
doctorate and one candidate had a valid visa to the US). The remaining 34 applications
were grouped in 16 panels:
 Medical Sciences
 Environmental Sciences
 Public Health
 Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering
 Biomedical Engineering
 Industrial Engineering
 Energy
