  • Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Application

The Fulbright Program is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 academic year for the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (S-I-R) Program.  S-I-R is a wonderful opportunity for academic units to host a visiting scholar for a semester or a full academic year to teach undergraduate courses, assist with internationalizing curriculum and engage with the community. Applications are due on Friday, November 1, 2019.

The 2020-2021 application guidelines will give you an overview of what an institutional proposal entails and provides a roadmap through the Fulbright S-I-R Slate application form. There are varieties of webinars planned for this season that highlight the program, institution types and provide a walkthrough of the application.

Application deadline: November 1, 2019.

Please let me know if you have any questions throughout the cycle and I look forward to speaking more with you about this opportunity.

Kind regards,
