About Center for Gulf Studies
Application Guidelines
U.S. Fulbright Scholar applicants wishing to be affiliated with AUK should contact the Center for Gulf Studies well in advance of the Fall application deadline (preferably during the preceding Spring semester). The Center will provide applicants with information regarding Fulbright affiliation at AUK and forward the applicant's materials to the appropriate division head (Social Sciences, Humanities, Sciences, or Business).

If the division head deems an applicant's candidacy beneficial to the division's work, and has identified a faculty member within their division to work with the applicant, the CGS will forward the affiliation request to the Office of the Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences for further review. If the applicant's proposal and general qualifications are deemed a good match for AUK's programs and institutional needs, s/he will receive an official letter of invitation from the Dean's Office to submit as part of their Fulbright application materials.

Subsequent communication with the scholar regarding the application process and, if awarded a grant, logistical concerns for in-country arrival, will be managed by the Center for Gulf Studies.

AUK and the Center for Gulf Studies welcome applications in all fields, with a strong preference for the social sciences: political science, history, Middle East area studies (particularly Gulf studies), sociology, anthropology, and psychology.
