Fulbright Scholar Grants
The traditional Fulbright Scholar Program sends 800 U.S. faculty and professionals abroad each year. Grantees lecture and conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields.
The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Early Career Awards - Offered to assistant professors and non-tenure track faculty, applicants typically are exempt from requirements prescribing a fixed number of years teaching experience. The total number of these awards is growing daily as additional country programs join to encourage the development of younger faculty. For grantees' home institutions, Early Career Awards present exceptional opportunities to nuture young faculty, to help them to establish international reputations, to build global networks, and to add luster to their home institution's reputation.
Distinguished Chairs Program - Designed for faculty with substantial bodies of work, this program operates in Western and Central Europe, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and Israel offering opportunities in a wide range of academic disciplines. The Chairs awards are considered among the most prestigious appointments in the Fulbright program, furnishing the recipients with opportunities for teaching, or research, or both. Scholars are hosted by major overseas universities with opportunities for expanding their networks, discovering new avenues of investigation, and consulting with colleagues about their academic discipline and issues in higher education. Grantees regularly create ties between home and host institutions that encourage on-going projects and the exchange of students.
