Fulbright Specialist Program

The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) is designed to provide short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) for U.S. faculty and professionals. Shorter grant lengths give specialists greater flexibility to pursue a grant that works best with their current academic or professional commitments. The FSP promotes linkages between U.S. academics and professionals and their counterparts at host institutions overseas. Applications to the Specialist Program are accepted on a rolling basis, and peer review of applications is conducted eight times per year.

Interested applicants may download the Fulbright Senior Specialist flyer or contact World Learning for more details.
