The Institute of International Education (IIE) is pleased to announce the competition is now open for organizations interested in delivering 2013-14 Fulbright Visiting Scholar enrichment seminars.
Proposals are due by Friday, June 14, 2013.
During the 2013-14 academic year, up to four enrichment seminars, each focusing on a topic and hosting up to 75 Fulbright Visiting Scholars, will be held in cities throughout the United States. We are currently inviting organizations to submit proposals to coordinate and deliver one of these seminars.

Previous seminar topics have included: “Human Rights and the Global Democracy Movement,” “Public Health Issues – Global Health,” “Social Entrepreneurship: Doing Well by Doing Good,” “Valuing Diversity and Resolving Conflict,” and a variety of other topics.
