Medical Clearance

All Fulbright grants are contingent upon medical clearance.

Senior scholars

All Fulbright Scholars (with the exception of short-term grantees) are required to pass a medical clearance prior to final grant confirmation. If your grant is longer than six weeks, your Fulbright award is contingent upon medical clearance. In order to meet this obligation, have your physician complete the Department of State Academic Exchanges Participant Medical History and Examination Form no sooner than six months and no later than two months prior to your grant start date and submit the form via the IIE Participant Portal to IIE/CIES. Medical clearance for accompanying dependents is not required.

Student Researchers

Submission Deadline: The Medical History and Examination Form is due no later than two months before your grant start date. It should be submitted as soon as possible.

Please read the information on the Finalist Resources for more details .

Do ensure that you submit the signed medical form via the IIE Grantee Portal and then inform USIEF about your medical clearance.
