Fulbright Specialist Program

This Program was initiated in 2001 to provide Fulbright grants of two to six weeks to qualified scholars to work with their professional counterparts at foreign academic institutions worldwide.

The objective of the Fulbright Specialist Program is to avail scholarship and professional expertise to difficult to recruit disciplines such as marketing, hospitality, some medical specializations etc.for which the host institution has not been able to attract a lecturer for a full grant period, and to place Fulbright lectures at smaller or more isolated institutions where a regular Fulbright lecturer grant may not be feasible.

To participate in the program, the requesting institution is invited to apply through the Embassy specifying the expertise required and giving the name of the specialist, if one has been identified. The final selection of the specialist remains the responsibility of the Office of Academic Exchange of the State Department.

There is a rolling deadline for applications, so host institutions should contact the Fulbright Program Coordinator at least four-five months in advance of the dates they require the training.
