Award Details
Grant Activity

Fulbright Mongolia scholars will conduct their own research, work collaboratively with new colleagues at the host institution, engage with students, and become involved in the local community.  Applicants may propose teaching projects, research projects or a combination of both in a range of subject areas relevant to Mongolia, U.S., or U.S.-Mongolia relations. 

Scholars may also be asked to assist the host institution with curriculum and program development and/or supervise graduate student research projects.

For teaching/research grants, research should make up no more than 50 percent of grant activities.

In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary activities‎.

Special Features

Fulbright East Asia Pacific Regional Travel Program

During their grant period, Fulbright Scholars in the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region have the opportunity to apply for funds to support short-term (3-14 days) travel to other countries in the EAP region for activities such as lectures, workshops, graduate or faculty seminars, master classes or recitals, curricular advising or panel presentations. Funding covers transportation only. It is not necessary to suggest regional activities nor identify a host as part of the initial Fulbright application, though scholars may pursue invitations for short-term activities in other EAP countries once notified that they have been selected for a Fulbright grant. Scholars may only apply for travel program funds once in country during their Fulbright grant period.
