The Office of Public Affairs at the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam accepts applications for fellowship programs for graduate study in the United States from Tanzanians who have minimum two to five years' working experience with an institution and the endorsement of the institution to apply for the program so they will have a job upon their return. In addition, the whole process - from initial application to outbound travel if selected, takes a full year. All our programs require applicants be resident in Tanzania and have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree to be eligible.
We regret we do not fund graduate programs in Tanzania. For information about our graduate fellowship programs in the U.S. please visit: our Educational Exchange website or email our Educational Exchanges Advisor.
Applications for next year’s cycle would be due this year, usually between March and June, depending on the program. Please note that most of the programs have an online application process, with supporting documents to be submitted in person or by mail.
For recent graduates and undergraduates, we offer advice and access to information for study in the U.S. through our Educational Advising Center. Our Educational Advisor may be contacted through email email@example.com or by calling +255 22 2294000 or by visiting the Embassy at 686 Old Bagamoyo Road, Msasani on Mondays or Wednesdays from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. We advise students to check whether the Advisor is in that day before they come in.
Services provided by the Educational Advisor include an overview of the higher educational system in the United States, college/university search tools and guidance, and financial aid information, to mention a few.

We wish you all the best in your endeavors.
