Scholarship

  • Fulbright Programs

    Fulbright Scholar Program

    Fulbright

    The Fulbright Scholar Program, established in 1946 under legislation introduced by former Senator J. William Fulbright, is administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) on behalf of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in the United States Department of State.

    The program currently operates in approximately 155 countries worldwide and is funded primarily by appropriations made by the United States Congress to the Department of State.

    Fulbright Scholar Program Facts

    Core Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program
    The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program provides awards through an annual competition to more than 800 U.S. scholars and professionals to lecture and/or conduct research at institutions in more than 125 countries in a wide variety of academic disciplines. Program duration ranges from a semester to an academic year. Fulbright Scholar grant applications for 2017-2018 are due August 1, 2016. Read more about General Programs.

    Fulbright Specialist Program
    The Fulbright Specialist Program sends U.S. scholars and professionals overseas for a period of two to six weeks to collaborate with professional counterparts at institutions of higher education on curriculum and faculty development, institutional assessment and planning, and related activities. Read more about Specialist Programs. 

    International Education Administrators Program
    The International Education Administrators (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. Grantees have the opportunity to learn about the host country’s education system as well as establish networks of U.S. and international colleagues. Read more about International Education Administrators Programs.

    Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program
    The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program provides awards to approximately 900 foreign scholars from over 150 countries to conduct postdoctoral research at U.S. institutions from an academic semester to an academic year.

    Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program
    The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program (S-I-R) enables U.S. colleges and universities to host foreign academics to lecture on a wide range of subject fields for a semester or academic year. Read more about Scholar-in-Residence Program.

    Outreach Lecturing Fund
    The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) provides funding for campuses to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars, who are already in the United States, for short-term speaking engagements. Special consideration is given to campuses that have not previously participated in the Fulbright Scholar Program. Read more about Scholar-in-Residence Program.

    For more detailed information on any of these programs, please visit the CIES website.
