Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) Program
The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) Program brings scholars and professionals from abroad for one semester or an academic year to U.S. campuses that do not often have the opportunity to host visiting scholars, but are interested in initiating international programs and curricula, and global studies or area-specific academic programs. Institutions that serve student populations that are underrepresetned in international exchange programs, including minority-serving institutions and communitiy colleges, are encouraged to submit a proposal.
Fulbright Occasional Lecture Program (OLP)
This program provides an opportunity for individual faculty and departments to invite Fulbright Visiting Scholars located at other institutions in the United States to make presentations and engage in other activities on campus and in the community. Travel awards are provided for this purpose.
Fulbright Visiting Specialists Program: Direct Access to the Muslim World
The Fulbright Visiting Specialists Program assists U.S. higher education institutions and communities enrich their understanding of Islamic civilization and culture, and social, political and economic developments in the Muslim world. Fulbright Visiting Specialists, who are matched with U.S. institutions for a period of three to six weeks, lecture or teach short courses, assist with the program and curriculum developments, interact with students and participate in public outreach programs with community groups, local schools and civic organizations.
