Fulbright Opportunities for Faculty

Fulbright Funding Opportunities for U.S. Scholars 

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers opportunities for scholars in all disciplines to advance their research and teaching interestes, promote mutual understanding, and collaborate with scholars abroad. There are over 450 awards in more than 125 countries, and many are open to all disciplines. The complete list of opportunities can be found in the Catalog of Awards. Opportunities range from 2 to 12 months in length and include flexible options for multiple shorter visits to many host countries. Additionally, some awards provide dependent support for scholars wishing to bring family members. U.S. citizenship is required. 

The Fulbright Specialist Program sends U.S. citizen faculty and professionals to serve as expert consultants on curriculum, faculty development, institutional planning, and related subjects at academic institutions abroad for a period of 2 to 6 weeks.

The Fulbright-Hays Program, a Fulbright Program funded by a Congressional appropriation to the United States Department of Education, awards grants to individual U.S. K-14 pre-teachers, teachers and administrators, pre-doctoral students and postdoctoral faculty, as well as to U.S. institutions and organizations. Funding supports research and training efforts overseas, with a focus on non-Western foreign languages and area studies.
