Current Funding Opportunities


The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP)
Promotes linkages between U.S. scholars and professionals and their counterparts at host institutions overseas. Grant Duration: Two- to six-weeks.

Shorter grant lengths give Specialists greater flexibility to pursue projects that work best with their current academic or professional commitments. International travel costs and a per day grant payment are funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating host institutions cover grantee in-country expenses or provide in-kind services.

PROGRAM ACTIVITIES: Focus is on the needs of higher education institutions and not personal research. Eligible activities include lecturing, training in pedagogy, participation in special conferences or workshops, collaboration on curriculum planning and institutional or faculty development.
PROGRAM BENEFITS: The enhanced global perspective that Fulbright Specialists gain from their experience contributes to their professional development. Fulbright Specialists grants also lay the foundation for development of institutional linkages.
REQUIREMENTS: Applicants must be U.S. citizens and have a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal/professional degree (or recognized professional standing and accomplishments) plus at least five years of university teaching experience or professional experience. Deadline: Open

The applicatioon process - places you on a ROSTER - it is not a guarantee of acceptance.

A host college or university must accept your name from the roster - you may then travel to said university.

Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund

Invite a  Fulbright Visiting Scholar to FIT!
The Outreach Lecturing Fund Allows US Institutions to Invite Fulbright Visiting Scholars to:
         Give department or campus-wide lectures to students or faculty (or both);
         Hold lectures in classrooms where the scholar can make a contribution to the discipline;
         Meet with faculty to allow for an exchange of ideas;
         Have informal gatherings with students and faculty;
         Meet with community organizations or religious groups that have a special interest in international relations.

Invite a Fulbrighter that is already visiting this country or staying right here in NYC!
Faculty can identify scholars to invite to their campuses for Outreach Lecturing Fund visits by consulting the Fulbright Visiting (Non-U.S.) Scholar List.
The 2015-16 List will be posted on the CIES Website during the first week of October, 2015.  After a suitable visiting scholar is identified, you may contact the scholar directly via the faculty associate information on the List, or contact the Grants Office to obtain scholars' contact information.

Fulbright will pay for the scholars' travel fees. Host institutions are expected to cover local transportation, lodging accommodations, and meals.
