Application For Institutions

Opportunities for Institutional Development

Last year, 46 institutions took advantage of the opportunities provided by the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program to internationalize programs, develop curricula and faculty, and diversify student and faculty experiences. Your institution is invited to learn how it can take advantage of S-I-R benefits in 2014-2015.

Unlike any other program within Fulbright, S-I-R primarily focuses on the needs of institutions. It funds the lecturing work of Visiting Scholars in programs developed by such Historically Black Colleges as Miles College and Hispanic-serving institutions such as Texas A&M University-Kingsville. S-I-R also helps fund Visiting Scholars for lecturing at tribal colleges, community colleges, Asian-American and Native American/Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions - AANAPISI, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions - ANNH and small, liberal arts institutions. If your institution is not among these groups, it can still submit a proposal for funding. Keep in mind that your proposal will only be considered after reviewing proposals from targeted institutions are reviewed.

The S-I-R Program can help your institution leverage its financial, campus and community assets in a collaborative manner. This helps your school achieve short- and long-term goals and gives the Visiting Scholar you host the opportunity to develop their lecturing and technical consulting skills. This approach also helps diversify the international experiences of your surrounding community.

Thank you for your interest in S-I-R and the enriching opportunities it can provide for your institution, faculty, students and community.
