Additional Information and Clarifications:

  • Two application forms are available – US citizens should fill out and submit the application, that is bilingual Slovene/English.
  • The Basic Health Insurance with the Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia is not obligatory if the visiting student or scholar has sufficient health insurance. If the applicant will want to have this insurance in Slovenia, this has to be stated at the application. The payment of health insurance in Slovenia has to be done by the Fulbright student/scholar and is then refunded quarterly upon presentation of required documents.
  • The Fulbrighters from US must register their residence in Slovenia after arrival.
  • Note that the Fulbright scholarship will be paid to the account in Slovenia so make sure you will open an non-resident account at the bank of your choice. To do so you will need a Slovene tax and ID number, issued by the Slovene local authority.
