Award Details
Grant Activity

Scholars and appropriately qualified professionals outside of academia may engage in collaborative research or combine teaching and research activities, or pursue a professional project in their area of specialization. Activities may also include consulting on curriculum, program and faculty development and conducting workshops. Applicants with a teaching/research project may determine the percentage of the grant dedicated to each activity and should define this in the project proposal. The activities can be conducted in the same academic year or over the course of two consecutive years and may consist of one multi-country trip, two or three single country trips or two dual-country trips.

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.
Grant Length
Minimum length of the total grant is three months and the maximum is six months. A minimum of one month must be spent in each host country, each visit.
Grant Dates

Earliest start date is June 15, 2019; latest start date is May 2020. All grants must be completed by August 2021. Preference is given to scholars proposing projects during the host institution's academic year.

World regions are defined as Sub-Saharan Africa, East Asia and the Pacific, Europe-Eurasia, Middle East and North Africa, South and Central Asia, and Western Hemisphere.
