Award Details
Grant Activity

Teaching, research, or a project combining both activities. The German Fulbright Commission is particularly interested in teaching and/or research proposals based on comparative approaches and issues, especially but not exclusively in the humanities and social sciences. Whether lecturing, consulting on course design/curriculum and/or researching, the specifics of the arrangement should be worked out directly with the prospective host institution.

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 research or teaching activities‎.
Grant Length
Two to four months per segment
Grant Dates

Grants are tenable between September 2018 and July 2020, with a start date no later than April 2019. No summer research or study is possible. For maximum outreach and impact, the project activities should take place when German universities are in session, i.e. during the core lecture periods which last from early October until the end of January (fall term) and from early April until the end of June (summer term).

Locations

Applicants are encouraged to arrange affiliation with any appropriate institution.

Flex Option
Yes
Flex Description

The Flex Award is designed for scholars who require multiple visits to the host country. This option allows grants to be conducted over short segments, preferably during the German fall and/or summer terms. Interested applicants should clearly indicate plans for Flex in their project statement, including a project timeline. Flex awards are offered for teaching, teaching/research, and research. Flex grant parameters: the total grant length (over two segments) should be from two months to four months. The minimum length for any one grant segment is one month and the maximum is three months. Two grant segments may be spread over one or two consecutive years.

Scholars planning segments that last less than one term (i.e., one or two months) but include teaching activities should propose to teach compact block seminars and include syllabi tailored to the needs of the host institution. Scholars may be asked to give public talks, mentor students and otherwise engage with the host-country academic community.
