The Fulbright Scholar Program
Since 1947, more than 32,000 U.S. citizens and 34,000 citizens of other nations received grants from the Fulbright Scholar Program for faculty and professionals. Faculty may apply for this prestigious scholarship to conduct research and/or to lecture in almost any country in a wide variety of academic and professional fields. The Fulbright Scholar Program is administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) and sponsored by the Bureau of Cultural and Educational Affairs.
The competition for 2017-2018 is NOW OPEN. The deadline to apply is August 1, 2016.
Apart from the above U.S. Scholar Program, which is widely known and provides approximately 750 grants annually, there are also Special Programs for U.S. Scholars and the Visiting Scholar Program.
