At a time when we face global challenges, international engagement is more important than ever, and many countries are actively seeking experts in American Studies. The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers opportunities for scholars, professionals, and postdocs to advance their research and teaching interests, promote mutual understanding, and collaborate with scholars abroad. The program is accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year through September 15, 2020. 

For some awards, countries are specifically seeking experts in your field. For example, the Slovak Republic is interested in applicants who can teach and conduct research in U.S. Government and Politics, Law or History; Norway would like experts to teach and/or research at the University of Bergen; and Turkey is looking for candidates to teach American History and Literature.  

We have opportunities to match your goals and availability. There are over 450 awards available in more than 125 countries and many are open to all disciplines. The complete list of opportunities is located in the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Catalog of Awards. Opportunities range from 2 to 12 months in length and include flexible options for multiple shorter visits to many host countries. While Fulbright is always supportive of scholars bringing family members to share their Fulbright experience, some awards provide dependent support to help scholars off-set the additional expense.

Becoming a Fulbright Scholar is an experience and honor that will serve you throughout your career. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or join our weekly office hours. We would welcome the opportunity to explain the program further and work with you on your application.
