More Details

The Fulbright Egyptian Student Program seeks applicants that have developed a sense of personal integrity and are original thinkers.  Copying someone else’s writing, whether from the Internet, from a book or from a friend is considered plagiarism. Any quoted words or sentences should include a citation. An applicant who is found to have plagiarized in any form (including unintentional or accidental plagiarism) in his or her application will be disqualified. All content in applications must be the applicant’s original contribution and his/her own intellectual property.
