Fulbright Scholar Program:

The Fulbright Program awards approximately 8,000 grants annually. Roughly 1,600 U.S. students, 4,000 foreign students, 1,200 U.S. scholars, and 900 visiting scholars receive awards, in addition to several hundred teachers and professionals. Approximately 370,000 "Fulbrighters" have participated in the Program since its inception in 1946.


Fulbright Programs for US Scholars:
Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program: The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program sends approximately 1,200 American scholars and professionals per year to approximately 125 countries, where they lecture and/or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields.
Fulbright Specialist Program: The Fulbright Specialist Program is a short-term complement to the core Fulbright Scholar Program, sends U.S. faculty and professionals to serve as expert consultants on curriculum, faculty development, institutional planning and related subjects at overseas academic institutions for a period of 2 to 6 weeks.
Fulbright-Hays Program: The Fulbright-Hays Program 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, which focus on non-Western foreign languages and area studies.
Fulbright Distinguished Chair Awards: The Fulbright Distinguished Chair Awards comprise approximately forty distinguished lecturing, distinguished research and distinguished lecturing/research awards ranging from three to 12 months. Fulbright Distinguished Chair Awards are viewed as among the most prestigious appointments in the Fulbright Scholar Program. Candidates should be eminent scholars and have a significant publication and teaching record.
Fulbright International Education Administrators Program: The Fulbright International Education Administrators (IEA) Seminar Program offers fully funded grants for U.S. higher education administrators to participate in an intensive, two-week seminar abroad to learn about other countries’ higher education systems.  Seminar participants develop new perspectives and insights for improving internationalization opportunities on their campus.  Seminars are available in India, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Germany, France, and Russia.  Visit www.cies.org/iea for information about deadlines and preferred specializations for each country.  Upcoming webinars for each country can be found on their website.
Fulbright Global Scholar Award: The Fulbright Global Scholar Award allows U.S. academics and professionals to engage in multi-country, trans-regional projects. As a truly worldwide award, U.S. scholars will be able to propose research or combined teaching/research activity in two to three countries with flexible schedule options; trips can be conducted within one academic year or spread over two consecutive years.

Fulbright Programs for Visiting Scholars:
Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program: The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program provides grants to approximately 800 foreign scholars from over 155 countries to lecture and/or conduct postdoctoral research at U.S. institutions for an academic semester to a full academic year.
Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund: The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) provides funding for U.S. institutions to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars who are already in the United States for short-term speaking engagements. They will have around 250 scholars in the United States throughout the summer who can be requested for summer engagements.
Fulbright Visiting Scholar Enrichment Programs: The Enrichment Program, implemented by CIES on behalf of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), offers a variety of enrichment activities in different locations throughout the academic year for current Fulbright Visiting Scholars. These activities are designed to enable scholars to better experience America and to further the Fulbright Program’s goal of increasing mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and people of other countries.

Fulbright Programs for US Institutions:
Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund: The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) provides funding for U.S. institutions to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars who are already in the United States for short-term speaking engagements. They will have around 250 scholars in the United States throughout the summer who can be requested for summer engagements.
Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program: The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program (S-I-R) provides U.S. colleges and universities the opportunity to host scholars from other countries for a semester or an academic year. Fulbright S-I-Rs teach primarily at the undergraduate level, collaborate with faculty and administrators, and interact with the campus and local community.  Institutions underrepresented in the Fulbright Program are especially encouraged to participate, as are minority-serving institutions, community colleges, and rural institutions.  We encourage you to visit their website to listen to a recording of recent S-I-R Overview webinars and download a copy of the S-I-R Application Guidelines.
