How to apply for a Fulbright Grant
Guidelines for faculty and staff who wish to apply for Fulbright grants.
The Fulbright Scholar Program
Having a Fulbright not only makes it possible for you to lecture and pursue research in another part of the world, it allows you to bring that experience back to your students and colleagues at home. Few other achievements offer the professional and personal opportunities that a Fulbright does; scholars encounter different cultures, form lasting bonds with colleagues from other nations, and gain new perspectives on research and teaching.
- The core Fulbright Scholar Program sends 800 U.S. faculty or professionals abroad each year.
- There are now a variety of grants available, from the core grants of 2-10 months (most often a combination of teaching and research) to Specialist awards of 4-6 weeks.
- Deadline to apply for a core (traditional) grant is August 1, 2011 for grants for 2012-13; Specialist grants have a rolling application deadline.
