The Fulbright Scholar Program is offering 800 lecturing, research or combined lecturing/research awards during the 2008-2009 academic year. U.S. Fulbright Scholars in 150 countries and all regions of the world enjoy an experience of a lifetime, one that provides a broad cultural perspective on their academic disciplines and connects them with colleagues at institutions around the globe.
Awards range from two months to an academic year. Faculty and professionals may apply not only for awards specifically in their field, but also for one of the many “All Discipline” awards open to any field. Grants are awarded to faculty of all academic ranks, including adjunct and emeritus. In most countries lecturing is in English, though awards in Latin America, Francophone Africa, and the Middle East may require proficiency in another language.
The application deadline for Fulbright traditional lecturing and research grants worldwide is August 1, 2007. U.S. citizenship is required.
