Award Details
Award Activity

The U.S. Scholar Program to Belarus has been suspended through the 2021-2022 academic year. We are accepting applications for the 2022-2023 academic year. Potential applicants for 2022-2023 should discuss the status of the U.S. Scholar Fulbright Program to Belarus with IIE (EuropeEurasia@iie.org) before applying.

The purpose of the program in Belarus is to offer U.S. Scholars the possibility to teach 2-3 Business Administration courses per semester to undergraduate students and/or M.B.A. program courses to professionals.

In addition to their primary activities, the Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, engage with host university faculty and student communities, advise on curriculum development, and participate in conferences.

Upon arriving in Belarus, U.S. Scholars and their family members will receive a full in-country orientation, conducted by staff at the Public Affairs Section.    

The U.S. Embassy in Minsk will involve the Scholars in educational and cultural activities and provide opportunities to build bridges with other local institutions and network with professional communities. 

A placement in Belarus will contribute to the goal of the Fulbright program to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations.

Scholars selected for this award can choose to:
  • Assist in faculty, curriculum, and/or program development
  • Teach graduate and/or undergraduate courses designated by the host institution
  • Teach graduate and/or undergraduate courses of the applicant’s choosing
