United States Educational Foundation in India

The United States Educational Foundation in India (USEFI) was set up after a bilateral agreement on education exchange was signed between India and the US on February 2, 1950 to “deepen” and “widen” mutual understanding between the citizens of India and the US through focused educational cultural exchange.

On July 4, 2008, India and the US signed another historic new Fulbright agreement, which strengthened educational exchanges between India and the US. The USIEF has set priorities for future development with meticulous and strategic planning. Its mandate is to explore viable ways in which the Foundation may respond to requests for services from both Indian and the US universities interested in linkages.

The amount for the partnership has been increased from US$ 5.0 million to US$ 7.06 million from 2010-11. 180 Nehru-Ful Bright Scholars were selected during 2010-11 out of which 102 scholars were from India. In 2012-13, 323 scholars were selected for the Awards.

The following grants are available for Indian scholars under the programme
