Description:The US Department of State, through the Core Fulbright US Scholar Program, will provide postsecondary teaching and research exchange opportunities in 125 countries for US faculty and experienced professionals in a wide variety of academic and professional fields during the 2014 to 2015 academic year. Eligible applicants are US citizens, with a PhD or equivalent professional terminal degree. For professionals and artists outside academe, recognized professional standing and substantial professional accomplishments are expected.

Preference will be given to candidates who have not previously held a Fulbright Scholar grant, and have not had substantial recent experience in the country to which they are applying. Duty abroad in the US Armed Forces is not disqualifying, and preference will be given to veterans when other factors are equivalent. Competitive applicants will describe professional excellence as evidenced by publications, grants, fellowships, honors, awards, conference papers, exhibitions, compositions and performances, as well as a record of service to the field and the applicants’ home institutions. Although English is sufficient for lecturing in many world areas, foreign language proficiency may be required.

Experience and discipline requirements vary. Please consult the website for specific application criteria for each country, and for the program staff assigned by geographic area.
