Visiting Scholar Seminars
Scholars located at institutions outside Anchor City areas will have the opportunity to apply to attend an enrichment seminar that will take place during the academic year.
The Institute of International Education (IIE) is currently seeking to implement up to five Fulbright Visiting Scholar Enrichment Seminars during the 2016-17 academic year in cities throughout the United States, each focusing on a topic of shared global importance and hosting up to 90 Fulbright Visiting Scholars. We are currently inviting organizations to submit proposals to design, and assist in the development and execution of one of these enrichment seminars, with dedicated funding for selected organizations of up to $20,000.
Proposals are due Monday August 15, 2016 (5 PM EDT)
If you are interested in learning more about the program or how your organization can submit a proposal, please register for our Fulbright Enrichment Seminar Information Webinar on Wednesday July 20, 2016 at 2:00pm EDT. Please click here to register.

The Fulbright Association (FA), comprised of alumni and friends of the Fulbright Program, invites visiting scholars to participate in enrichment activities organized by many of its 58 chapters located throughout the country. Like the other enrichment activities, these programs are supported by the U.S. Department of State. Visiting scholars will be contacted by the local FA chapter in their area. For more information, including details regarding the geographic jurisdiction of each chapter, please visit www.fulbright.org. For scholars not located in chapter areas, feel free to contact the Fulbright Association for possible connections with U.S. Fulbright alumni in your area.
Through these opportunities, we invite you to experience the Fulbright world outside the classroom.
Best wishes for an enriching experience in the United States!
