Award Details
Grant Activity

The Border designation of this award refers to geography as well as focus. The goal of the Fulbright Border Program is to enhance linkages and collaborative work between U.S. and Mexican institutions and scholars in the border regions. Grantees maintain their U.S. residence and travel into Mexico periodically to engage in research, teaching or both. At least eight work days per month should be spent in Mexico. Grantees can teach university courses and/or conduct research in any discipline, except medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry, that is relevant to U.S.-Mexico border relations.

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.
