Join The Ranks of Fulbright Scholars

The Fulbright Scholar Program offers a host of opportunities for retired faculty, some of our most successful grantees, to lecture and do research in countries across the globe.

Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Scholar Program has afforded over 40,000 U.S. faculty and professionals the occasion to exchange knowledge with colleagues in 140 other countries.

The traditional Fulbright Scholar Program allows scholars to lecture and do research abroad for periods ranging from two months to more than a year. The newly established Fulbright Senior Specialists Program offers short-term
grants ranging from two to six weeks.

As a Fulbright grantee, you would have the chance to discover new research directions, conduct collaborative projects with international colleagues, maintain long-term overseas professional relationships and put your expertise to work in exciting new environments.

While many awards specify project and host institution, there are a number of open "Any Field" awards that would allow you to propose your own project and determine your host institution affiliation. Foreign language skills are
needed in some countries, but most Fulbright lecturing assignments are in English.

The application deadline for Fulbright traditional lecturing and research grants worldwide is usually August 1. The Senior Specialist Program has a rolling deadline.
