The Fulbright Global Scholar Award allows U.S. academics and professionals to engage in multi-country, trans-regional projects. As a truly worldwide award, U.S. scholars will be able to propose research or combined teaching/research activity in two to three countries with flexible schedule options; trips can be conducted within one academic year or spread over two consecutive years.
Applications are welcome from a wide range of scholars - early career, professor emeriti, independent scholars - and from all disciplines, including those with an interdisciplinary focus.
- U.S. citizenship - permanent residence is not sufficient.
- Ph.D. or equivalent professional/terminal degree (including a master’s degree, depending on the field) as appropriate. Where an award is open to early career or postdoctoral candidates, scholars may apply if they will complete the requirements for their doctoral (or equivalent) degree by February 1 in the year following the application deadline, unless otherwise specified in the award description.
- Three to six months total with a minimum of one month spent in each host country, each visit.
