The Fulbright Scholar Program offers U.S. faculty, administrators and professionals grants to lecture, conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields, or to participate in seminars. The Fulbright Program, the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Fulbright Scholar Programs for U.S. citizens include:
Visiting (Non-U.S.) Scholars
Each year some 800 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Visiting Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing in the United States. Individual grants are available to scholars from over 155 countries. Individuals who meet the eligibility requirements apply for grants through the Fulbright commission/foundation or public affairs section of the U.S. embassy in their home countries. Fulbright Scholar Programs for non-U.S. citizens include:
Fulbright International Education Administrators (IEA) Program
Fulbright IEA seminars help U.S. international education professionals and senior higher education officials create empowering connections with the societal, cultural and higher education systems of other countries. Learn more about Fulbright IEA programs with Japan, Korea, Germany, France, India, Taiwan and Russia.
Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program
The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (S-I-R) Program assists U.S. higher education institutions in expanding programs of academic exchange. By supporting non-U.S. scholars through grants for teaching at institutions that might not have a strong international component, both the U.S. institution and the scholar grantee benefit.
