U.S. Embassy in Tunisia: Seeking Applications for Fulbright Specialist Program

Deadline: 31 August 2019

U.S. Embassy in Tunisia is seeking applications for its Fulbright Specialist Program that offers non-U.S. institutions the opportunity to host American academics or professionals to build expertise in a specific area.

The program strengthens ties between the host institution and the Fulbright Specialist’s home institution in the United States.

Eligible Disciplines

Projects designed by prospective host institutions should focus on one of these disciplines:

  • Agriculture
  • American Studies
  • Anthropology
  • Archeology
  • Biology Education
  • Business Administration

  • Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies
  • Physics Education
  • Political Science
  • Public Administration
  • Public/Global Health
  • Social Work
  • Sociology
  • Urban Planning

Program Activities

The Fulbright Specialist Program encourages host institutions to tailor projects to their own needs. However, all projects should have an education or training focus. Due to the short-term nature of the exchange, projects should have concrete objectives that can be achieved over the course of the Specialist’s visit. Past Specialists have supported host institutions by conducting activities such as: delivering a seminar or workshop; consulting on faculty or workforce development; developing academic or training curricula and materials; lecturing at the graduate or undergraduate level; or conducting needs assessments or evaluations for a program or institution. Note: Personal research projects, including clinical medical research or projects involving patient contact, are not eligible for funding under the Fulbright Specialist Program.

Program Parameters

  • All exchanges must range from 14 to 42 days in length, including weekends, holidays, and travel days.
  • Projects are restricted to one country.
  • Each project is limited to only one Fulbright Specialist grantee.
  • All projects should begin after January 1, 2019 and end no later than September 30, 2020.

Eligibility Criteria

Institutions that may be eligible to request a Fulbright Specialist include, but are not limited to: institutions of higher education; government institutions (ministries or agencies, courts, parliamentary, or congressional bodies); cultural institutions (conservatories, museums, etc.); non-governmental organizations including think tanks; and medical institutions (public health organizations, teaching hospitals, etc.).
