I would like to share with you some information about the 2017-2018 Fulbright Scholar competition.
The 2017-2018 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program Core Competition is now open.
The Fulbright Scholar Program offers teaching, research or combination teaching/research awards in over 125 countries for the 2017-2018 academic year. Opportunities are available for college and university faculty and administrators as well as for professionals, artists, journalists, scientists, lawyers, independent scholars and many others. Interested faculty and professionals are encouraged to learn more about these opportunities, and hundreds of others, by visiting the Catalog of Awards.
The application deadline for most awards is August 1, 2016. U.S. citizenship is required.
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.
Please view just some of the opportunities that are available in the upcoming competition in the field of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
In addition, please note that during the week of April 11-15, 2016, Ohio State will be holding the 7th Annual Fulbright Week, an initiative co-organized by the Office of International Affairs, the Graduate School, and the Undergraduate Fellowship Office.
As in the past, these three units have combined their efforts to provide a full week of events acknowledging past Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays recipients and hosting workshops, information sessions and open houses designed to inform potential Ohio State faculty, undergraduate and graduate student applicants about the opportunities available through the Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays programs. All faculty, professionals and students are welcome to participate in a myriad of activities that will be scheduled during the week of April 11-15, 2016. View a complete schedule of activities here.
Please share this information with students and faculty in your college and encourage them to contact me if they have any questions.
