Mid-October. After the campus process, Fulbright applications are screened in two stages. A nationally appointed committee in the United States will first review applications. Except in a few cases, you will not be asked for any further interviews. The Institute of International Education (IIE) will notify you via email by the end of January whether or not you have passed national screenings. If you pass (that is, are “recommended”), your application will be sent to the supervising agency in the country to which you are applying, and the final decisions will be made. You will receive final notification from IIE anywhere from mid-March to late June. Alternates sometime receive notification as late as July or August.
