Awards available in the Fulbright US Scholar Program

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program has reached out to AICA, asking us to note to members that its deadline of August 1 is a little over two months away. Fulbright Scholars are selected for their academic merit and leadership potential to teach, research, and exchange ideas. There are nearly 500 awards available in more than 125 countries; complete details are located in the Catalog of Awards.

Awards in the fine arts, or ones open to all disciplines, are available in Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Oman, Austria, India, Brazil, and many others.

The program extends an open invitation to join any of its upcoming webinars, including Application Walk-Through and Virtual Advising webinars where Fulbright staff go through the online application, discussing the various components and required materials. These sessions are designed to answer your questions about the award offerings and application process. Register soon as limited spots are available. The Global Hidden Gems webinar on June 21 2:00-3:00pm EDT will discuss awards which you may not have considered before.

Once you have identified an award to apply for, the application guidelines should illuminate the next steps in the process. The review committees consider the impact of the proposed project, academic merit and leadership potential of the applicant, and feasibility given the scholar’s background. Click here to begin an application, if you have not already done so. You are also invited to join My Fulbright to receive exclusive updates, program information and application tips.
