Fulbright Scholars Program

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.”

With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided almost 300,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Fulbright International Education Administrators (IEA) awards are two-week seminars designed to help U.S. international education professionals and senior higher education officials create empowering connections with their counterparts and higher education systems of other countries. Selected applicants have the opportunity to learn about the host country’s education system as well as establish networks of U.S. and international colleagues over the course of an intensive two-week grant duration.  Awardees return with enhanced ability to serve and encourage international students and prospective study-abroad students.

Please join on April 21 for a general overview of IEA opportunities for U.S. administrators. You are invited to share these program details and upcoming webinar with appropriate staff on your campus!

Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program (S-I-R) continues to seek institutions to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars. Express your interest in a survey! S-I-R is a unique Fulbright Scholar Program initiative that is specifically driven by the goals of U.S. institutions of higher education to enhance internationalization efforts on their campuses. Through the S-I-R Program, institutions host a scholar from outside of the United States for a semester or full academic year to teach courses, assist in curriculum development, guest lecture, develop study abroad/exchange partnerships and engage with the campus and the local community.

Are you a representative of a U.S. University or College interested to learn more about S-I-R? Please complete this brief survey to stay informed!
