August 1, 2006 is the application deadline for traditional Fulbright Scholar grants worldwide. The Fulbright Scholar Program is offering 800 lecturing, research or combined lecturing/research awards in 150 countries around the world during the 2007-2008 academic year. Faculty may apply not only for awards specifically in their field, but also for one of the many “All Discipline” awards open to any field.
Every year U.S. Fulbright Scholars enjoy an experience of a lifetime, one that provides a broad cultural perspective on their academic disciplines and connects them with colleagues at institutions around the globe. Awards range from two months to an academic year. Grants are awarded to faculty of all academic ranks, including adjunct and emeritus. In most countries lecturing is in English, though awards in Latin America, Francophone Africa, and the Middle East may require proficiency in another language.
U.S. citizenship is required, and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board has recently adopted new eligibility requirements. For details of eligibility requirements, award descriptions, and an online application, visit our website at:
