This grant will cover travel to and from the destination and lodging may be offered by the hosting institution. Scholars may only apply for this grant once in country on their Fulbright grant. As funds are limited, Scholars are limited to one such travel grant.  

Before traveling to another country on a Regional Travel Grant, it is important to confirm trip details with the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section or Fulbright Commission in that country.

Financial assistance to attend the conference is provided as an additional Fulbright grant benefit.  Participation in the conference is contingent upon the availability of funds and other factors to include health and security considerations.
