SiPN Alums: Opportunities to return to Portugal

At SiPN, our ultimate objective at SiPN is that our students establish connections with Portugal and develop studies on the Portuguese-speaking world or Portugal-related topics. For this reason, we have funding opportunities for our alums to come back to Portugal.

Fulbright Grants for SiPN Alums

Since 2016, SiPN alumni enjoy priority access to a second Fulbright grant to Portugal, which will be funded entirely by FLAD. FLAD presently co-funds one of the Fulbright–FLAD Study/Research Grants to Portugal. These 8-month student grants to Portugal are open to U.S. citizens with at least a Bachelor’s degree and who are pursuing a Masters degree or a PhD level research.

Applicants who are SiPN alumni and whose candidacy passes through the initial selection process conducted by the International Institute for Education will enjoy priority access to the pool for this second Fulbright, dramatically increasing their chances of being selected for a Fulbright program. For more information on how to apply for a Fulbright and eligibility requirements, go here.

Fulbright Portugal already awarded 3 SiPN alums! SiPN/FLAD is already working with other alums that are preparing their application for these very distinctive grants too.

Other FLAD Programs

Altough FLAD mainly issues grants destined to Portuguese students and researchers, it currently makes available the USA@PT grant meant for U.S. professors and researchers who wish to participate in Portuguese-based conferences. Throughout the year FLAD issues other grants to which U.S. nationals can apply. Subscribe to FLAD’s mailing list or check its website to know more about grant opportunities.
