Fulbright Specialist Program

You might be familiar with the Fulbright Core program, but there are many other opportunities Fulbright offers.

One such is the Fulbright Specialist Program. This Fulbright grant is a two to six week consulting or teaching opportunity with institutions located in 140 countries. Interested faculty apply online. Their applications are reviewed and their names are placed on a Fulbright Specialist Roster. Institutions overseas develop projects and request specialists from the roster. The program does not support research but focuses on the role faculty can play in teaching and consulting with educational partners.

International travel costs and per diem would be funded by the US Department of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Your host institution would provide you with in-country expenses.

Your activities could include a variety of opportunities including: short-term lecturing, conducting seminars, teacher training, assessments and evaluations, special conferences or workshops, as well as collaborating on faculty development and curriculum or institutional planning.
