Fulbright Scholar Program

The Fulbright Program offers nine different types of opportunities for faculty who want to participate in teaching or conducting research abroad.  Awards are available from two months to an academic year.  Fluency in the language of the country is required by some countries, but most lecturing assignments are in English.



The Council for International Exchange Scholars website provides complete descriptions of programs and award opportunities available.  Applications, resources for applicants, and deadlines are also found on the website.
