Host institutions welcome scholars to teach full-time, conduct a combination of teaching and research (either at the same time or split semester by semester), or conduct a professional project in any discipline.
Teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is possible. Applicants should suggest courses for consideration in their proposals and be in touch with the university where they intend to teach. Tunisian university classes are generally two hours long and have approximately 30-100 students. Applicants should expect to teach at least 4.5 hours per week. Activities and courses will be finalized in consultation with the U.S. Embassy in Tunis and the host institution. More information about teaching and/or research proposals available here.
The Professional Project activity type provides professionals and artists in various fields the opportunity to interact with relevant organizations to further their career goals. Professional Projects may include visits to organizations in the applicant's field, practical experience in day-to-day operations, public lectures, artist residencies, or other appropriate professional activities. For more information, FAQs available here.
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.
