The Study Grant is for up to two years of study for a master’s degree.
Applicants complete an on-line application form which includes a personal essay, an essay on why they want to study in America, three letters of recommendation, transcripts of their academic record (relevé de notes), and a variety of personal information. Applicants must present scores of the TOEFL and GRE exams (GMAT in the case of business) and, if selected for an interview, be available in Rabat when called.
Those selected are called “Fulbright nominees,” and they are then placed in the hands of AMIDEAST and learn how to apply to American universities and are given the choice of four university placements. Nominees hear the results of their university applications in April, and AMIDEAST and MACECE make the final choice among the four universities for the nominee. This placement is then approved by Washington and upon approval, they are then full-fledged Fulbright grantees and depart for the USA in the summer of the year following application.
These tests are administered in Morocco on specific dates by AMIDEAST, 35 rue d’Oukaimeden, Agdal, Rabat, Tel: 0537-675-082. You must register in advance at AMIDEAST.
Most American universities require a minimum TOEFL score of 550 for the paper-based test and 213 for the computer-based test. For the MBA, the minimum GMAT score is 550.
Note that the MBA is the most competitive area of Fulbright grants.

Fulbright was a dream that came true! I had high expectations for this experience and I am definitely not disappointed. It’s been only a few months since I started my program, but I can testify that it’s been a life changing experience already. The first week alone set the tone for this journey and made it an unforgettable one from the very beginning. Being a strong believer in the power that individuals possess in shaping the world around them, I was amazed at how many great minds were present at the Fulbright Orientation week. I met grantees from all over the globe, and was truly inspired by their stories, potential and willpower to bring about change and make this world a better place. Meeting these folks made my desire and urge for success grows stronger. Once at my University, adapting to a new lifestyle, finding my way through the rigors of the program and achieving academic excellence in an atmosphere designed for me to thrive are just some of the good things that come along with being a Fulbrighter. Besides academics, living in a diverse campus is a true blessing. With so many activities and events going on, you definitely get caught up in the moment. I am also an avid traveler who loves exploring new places and cultures. And Fulbright made this possible as I’m able to explore the country, travel around, meet new people and discover new cultures."
