Fulbright Satellite Information Center

The Fulbright Information Center is a US Department Affiliated Advising Center that strives to provide accurate, comprehensive, current, and unbiased information on education in the United States. We do not endorse or rank any college or university. The Fulbright Information Center was the proud recipient of the 2004 Excellence Award for Overseas Educational Advising Centers awarded by NAFSA – Association of International Educators – with the support of Educational Testing Services - ETS.

The main services of this Center are the organization of individual and group advising sessions on undergraduate and graduate studies in the US, as well as topic specific advising sessions such as medicine, law, or MBA programs in the US; we also do credentials evaluation which include an explanation of the Portuguese educational system, information about the school and program of studies attended and a table for converting grades. The Center is also available to respond to any request from the US admissions Officers concerning Portuguese diplomas and transcripts.

The advising center started its activity in 1960, when the Fulbright Commission was created. In September 2001 the Center moved to a new location and changed its name to Fulbright Information Center. Since July 2003, the center is located at the University of Lisbon's main building as a result of a cooperative agreement signed between the Commission and the University.

The Center has implemented 16 regional and satellite information centers at Portuguese public universities, which serve as secondary centers of information, and collaborates frequently with the American Corners.

The ISCTE-IUL International Relations Office hosts one Fulbright Satellite Information Center. The partnership between ISCTE-IUL and Fulbright Commission was established in 2005 and aims to introduce students and faculty to the variety of fellowships offered by the Fulbright Programme.
