The U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2023-2024 Fulbright African Research Scholar Program (ARSP).
Two categories of grants are offered through ARSP: Research Grants and Program and Curriculum Development Grants.
Awards of three (3) to nine (9) months are offered for African university faculty or research institute professionals to conduct research in any academic discipline at a U.S. academic or research institution beginning no earlier than August 2023 and no later than March 2024.
Applicants must hold a doctorate or equivalent terminal degree in their fields at the time of application.
Preference will be given to individuals who have at least three years of university teaching experience and a productive scholarly record.
Program and Curriculum Development Grants:
Awards of three (3) to five (5) months are offered for African university faculty or administrators to conduct research in any academic discipline at a U.S. academic or research institution beginning no earlier than August 2023 and no later than March 2024.
Proposals should be linked to professional duties and demonstrate how the scholar will use the knowledge gained to develop new courses, curricula, or other academic programs at the home institution.
These grants are designed for university faculty or administrators with less experience and who may not have had recent access to research or instructional developments in their disciplines. A doctorate degree is not required, but applicants must hold a minimum of a master’s or equivalent graduate degree at the time of application.
Additional Information on Eligibility:
When submitting applications, candidates will be required to read, accept, and adhere to the following information pertaining to plagiarism:
The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program seeks applicants whose writing achieves highest academic standards of original research, writing, and citation. The program application includes the opportunity to describe your academic work and research. Application materials will be processed using software to help identify any instance of plagiarism. Plagiarism in any part of your application will result in your disqualification from participation in the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program.

It is expected that your project proposal will be your own work and writing, clearly citing secondary sources when describing the academic work and writing of others (including one’s own previously published work). Any sources used in the construction of your responses must be clearly cited in your project statement and bibliography.
