Summary:

Below is a brief description of Fulbright grants for U.S.
citizens to engage in lecturing and advanced research
worldwide. These grants are excellent professional
development opportunities and provide funding to pursue
professional interests abroad.



FULBRIGHT GRANTS FOR U.S. FACULTY AND PROFESSIONALS

Description:

Over 800 awards for college and university faculty and
nonacademic professionals to lecture or pursue advanced
research and/or related professional activity abroad. For
U.S. candidates, grants are available to nearly 130 countries.


Application Deadline:

U.S. candidates have an August 1 deadline for lecturing or
research awards. Non-U.S. candidates apply in their home
country for awards to come to the United States.


Areas of Interest:

Opportunities exist in every area of the social sciences, arts
and humanities, sciences, and many professional fields.
Fulbright-supported activities include undergraduate and
graduate teaching, individual advanced research, joint
research collaboration, and more.


Basic Eligibility Requirements:

Ph.D. or equivalent professional/terminal degree at the time
of application and U.S. citizenship (permanent residency is
not sufficient).

For professionals and artists outside academe, recognized
professional standing comparable to that associated with the
doctorate in higher education is required, unless otherwise
noted in the individual award description.

For some awards in TEFL, the masters degree in TEFL
or TESOL and professional experience may be suitable for
junior lecturing assignments.

College or university teaching experience is expected at the
level and in the field of the advertised assignment or
proposed lecturing activity for lecturing and combined
lecturing/research awards.


Grant Duration:

Awards range in duration from two months to twelve months.
Most lecturing assignments are for an academic term/semester
or a full academic year.


Language:

Foreign language proficiency may be expected as specified in
the award description or as required for the completion of the
proposed lecturing or research project.

The majority of teaching assignments are in English. The major
exceptions are Central and South America, where Spanish is
usually required, and francophone Africa, where one is
expected to be fluent in French.
