The Fulbright Specialist Program promotes linkages between U.S. academics and professionals and their counterparts at overseas universities or institutions with education focused programming.  The program awards grants to qualified U.S. faculty and professionals, in select disciplines, to engage in short-term collaborative 2 to 6 week projects at higher education institutions in over 100 countries worldwide.  Project activities focus on the strengthening and development needs of higher education institutions and do not fund personal research. Eligible activities include teacher training, short-term lecturing, conducting seminars, special conferences or workshops, as well as collaborating on curriculum planning, institutional and/or faculty development.  Applicant credentials, including teaching experience and research background, should strongly demonstrate competency in building institutional capacity and initiative in teacher training, curriculum development and/or innovative teaching.   Minimum requirements to apply include U.S. citizenship at the time of application, Ph.D. or other terminal degree plus five years or more of post-doctoral teaching, or equivalent professional experience.  Application deadlines are October 5 and December 14, 2011.  Learn more.
