Applications of Fulbright Specialist Project proposal submitted by Philippine (local) institutions must be submitted through the online application site. Applications are accepted or can be submitted in a year-round, rolling application process, but should be submitted within the current U.S. fiscal year (i.e. beginning October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018).
Adequate lead-time is given for recruitment of specialists who best fit the program request/proposal. Please allow a minimum of three month lead-time before the requested start date. Philippine host institutions should be prepared to provide the Fulbright Specialist with lodging, meals, and in-country transportation, either through monetary or in-kind contributions, throughout their full stay in the country. Feel free to contact the Philippine-American Educational Foundation (PAEF) for further questions.
- One country per project: With the exception of projects falling under a trilateral grant initiative, Fulbright Specialist projects are restricted to one country. All project activities must take place in the country requesting the project. If the project requests the Specialist to be in multiple locations, all locations must fall in the same country.
- One Specialist per project: Fulbright Specialist projects are restricted to one country. All project activities must take place in the country requesting the project. If the project requests the Specialist to be in multiple locations, all locations must fall in the same country.
- Project Time-frame: The length of a Fulbright Specialist project must be a minimum of 14 days and a maximum of 42 days, including travel days and weekends.
- Time between projects for Specialists: A project is restricted to one Specialist grantee, but multiple projects and specialists can be sent to the same country at the same time. Per FFSB Policy, a Specialist will not be approved for a second Fulbright grant unless two years has passed from the date of the completion of the previous Fulbright Specialist grant.
- Multi-visit (Serial) projects: A Multi-Visit project is one in which a Specialist conducts more than one visit to the host institution for the purpose of the necessary program evaluation or follow-up.
- If a project is approved to be Multi-Visit, all visits must occur within a one-year period, which is calculated by adding 12 months from the initial start date of the first visit through end date of the final visit.
- A Multi-Visit project cannot include more than three visits in total where each visit is a minimum of 14 days and all visits combined do not exceed 42 days.
- Please note that the majority of approved projects are not Multi-Visit, and project proposals should provide a strong justification for why more than one visit is necessary to achieve project outcomes.
Program Costs: In general, host institutions should be prepared to provide the Specialist with lodging, meals, and in-country transportation, either through monetary or in-kind contributions, through their full stay in country.
