Fulbright Opportunities

logoFulbright Specialist Program

This Fulbright grant is a two- to six-week consulting or teaching opportunity with institutions located in 140 countries. Interested faculty apply online, then applications are reviewed and names are placed on a Fulbright Specialist Roster. Institutions overseas develop projects and request specialists from the roster. The program does not support research, but focuses on the role faculty can play in teaching and consulting with educational partners. 

If requested from the roster, your international travel costs and per diem would be funded by the U.S. Department of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Your host institution would provide you with in-country expenses. Activities could include a variety of opportunities, such as short-term lecturing, conducting seminars, teacher training, assessments and evaluations, special conferences or workshops, as well as collaborating on faculty development and curriculum or institutional planning.

The Roster of Specialists is active for a five-year term. Roster candidates are reviewed by peers in their discipline and by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB).

Rolling deadlines to apply to the roster are May 5, July 1, September 8, and November 13. For more assistance, please contact Helen Gaudette at [email protected] or call the Office of International Programs at (212) 217-5380.
