Fellowship Opportunities

Core Fulbright Program

Nationality: U.S. Scholars only

The core Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program provides approximately 800 teaching and/or research grants to U.S. faculty and experienced professionals in a wide variety of academic and professional fields.  Grants are available in over 125 countries worldwide.  Example award categories include: Distinguished Chair, TEFL, Flex, and Postdoctoral and Early Career.  Grant lengths vary in duration: applicants can propose projects for a period of two to 12 months, as specified in the award description.  In addition, flexible options may be available (See Fulbright Flex Awards below). 

Interested faculty and professionals are encouraged to learn more about core Fulbright U.S. Scholar opportunities by visiting the online Catalog of Awards.
 

2015-2016 Highlights:
 
The Fulbright-Terra Foundation Award in the History of American Art
The Fulbright-Terra Foundation award provides U.S. Scholars the opportunity to teach and guest lecture on American art history prior to 1980 at the undergraduate or graduate level in China and select European Union (E.U.) countries.  Fulbright-Terra Foundation Scholars to the E.U. will also have the opportunity to conduct research while on their grant. Proposed coursework and methodology should be designed to increase awareness about American art to the next generation of art history teachers and scholars and to inspire university administrators, faculty and students to build their institutional capacity for curriculum and research mentoring on American art history.

Fulbright Flex Awards

Nationality: U.S. Scholars only

In order to engage U.S. scholars currently unable to spend extended periods of time abroad, the Fulbright Program welcomes applications from scholars who propose multiple, short-term stays in the host country over a period of two to three years. The Flex Award is also designed for scholars who require multiple visits abroad to accomplish their research objectives. In addition to their research activities, Flex award scholars will be required to give public talks, participate in seminars, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host country academic community. Applications that propose grant periods during the host institution’s academic year are preferred. 

Applicants should clearly indicate plans for their Flex grant in their project statements.  Specific details on invitation requirements and grant length will vary by country, and can be found in each individual award listing.  Some programs may offer opportunities for multi-country research, but these should be discussed with the appropriate CIES staff.

Participating host institutions cover grantee in-country expenses or provide in-kind services.

Project requests are submitted by non-U.S. institutions and focus on strengthening and supporting institutions’ development needs.  Eligible activities include short-term lecturing, conducting seminars, teacher training, assessments and evaluations, special conferences or workshops, as well as collaborating on faculty development and curriculum or institutional planning.

US Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF)

Nationality:  U.S. Citizens/Permanent Residents Only

Career Level:  Young Investigators,  Faculty

In 2012, the BSF launched a series of joint funding programs with the National Science Foundation (NSF), using special grants from the Israeli Ministry of Finance and the Council of Higher Education. The first of these programs was with the Chemistry division of the NSF, which has been running an international grant program for several years (ICC-International Collaboration in Chemistry). Israel has been added to the list of participating countries, which includes Austria, Brazil, France, Japan, Luxembourg, Russia, Spain, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. The BSF will serve as the funding agency for the Israeli scientists.

Basic structure of the program is simple, and is quite similar to the types of projects that the BSF has supported for the past 40 years. Scientists from Israel and the U.S. will write together a proposal for a joint research project, which will be conducted partly in Israel and partly in the U.S. The U.S. scientist will submit the proposal to the NSF, and if the proposal is selected, will receive a regular grant from the NSF. The Israeli scientist, together with his U.S. collaborator, will submit the same core proposal (same pre-proposal and later the same 15 pages of program description) to the BSF, using the BSF submission system and special instructions. If selected, the Israeli scientist will receive a BSF grant, which is planned to be larger than a regular BSF grant.

Amount: $230,000 for research and $75,000 for start-up
