Fulbright Visiting (Non-U.S.) Scholar Program: Application


To receive an application or deadline information for advanced research or university lecturing in the U.S., interested non-U.S. faculty and professionals must contact the Fulbright commission/foundation or public affairs section of the U.S. embassy in their home countries.

General Application Guideline

  • At the time of application, you must submit the following: (a) application form; (b) detailed statement of proposed activity; (c) detailed curriculum vitae; (d) three references and (e) letter of invitation, if applicable.
  • To ensure correct completion of the application, read carefully the detailed instructions provided with the application form.
  • All items must be in English.
  • The entire application must be typed or computer-generated. Use 10-point or larger type on all parts of the application. Handwritten applications will not be accepted.
  • Responses to questions on the four-page application must fit on the pages on which the questions originally appear. Do not attach additional pages to answer these questions.
  • If using an electronic version of the application, do not change the format of the forms, the pagination, the fonts or the type size.
  • Proofread the entire application before submitting it to the local Fulbright agency. The application should be free of grammatical and spelling errors.
  • Treat the application as a unitary whole, with all parts reinforcing the project statement. The flow should be orderly: the candidate's capabilities are listed in the application, further documented in the curriculum vitae and confirmed in the references. Use the project statement to make the parts interact by referring to items in the curriculum vitae or research bibliography. Without being redundant or simplistic, you should make it easier for the reviewer to find the key pieces of information you wish to convey.
