The Fulbright Scholars Program


The Fulbright Program offers a number of year- or semester-long research and/or teaching grants for college and university faculty members at all career stages. Short-term consulting grants are also available to U.S. faculty through the Fulbright Specialist Program. Staff may also be eligible to apply to some programs.  Generally, a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree is required to apply for a Fulbright Scholar Program grant. Faculty without a Ph.D. or the equivalent may apply for a Student Program grant to pursue independent research or to work towards a doctoral degree.
