Award Details
Grant Activity

Teaching, preferably at graduate level; conducting research and/or collaborating with colleagues at Spanish and Greek academic and research institutions; or a combination of both.

Activities may include presenting lectures, seminars and workshops as arranged by host institutions or the Fulbright Commissions.

Spain and Greece share historical and cultural links dating back to ancient times.  These include the Sephardic Jewish community of Greece (with its Ladino language and musical traditions), as well as the renowned Renaissance painter Domenikos Theotokopoulos, better known as El Greco.  Comparative research projects on Greece and Spain may address current or historical issues, and/or specific fields of study.  History, culture or current social, economic and political issues are just some of the areas that might be conducive to a comparative Fulbright approach.

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.
