Award Details
Award Activity

The Fulbright-Tocqueville Distinguished Scholar (All Disciplines) award aims to reinforce collaborative research between the United States and France in all fields of study. 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. We expect that grantees will show an interest in developing or strengthening long-lasting ties with the host institution.
