Grantees are invited as guest teachers and researchers at a French host university, where they have the opportunity to meet with French colleagues, to organize and participate in conferences and to interact with French graduate and doctoral students in their area of expertise. Grantees will teach courses at the postgraduate and doctoral level, undertake research and help organize and participate in conferences and seminars related to their area of expertise.

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.
