Deadline: 6 June 2016

The Office of Academic Exchange Programs in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) at the U.S. Department of State is seeking proposals for FY 2017 Fulbright Specialist Program.

The program offers opportunities for U.S. academics and professionals (such as attorneys, business professionals, artists, and journalists) whose qualifications and experience are at the faculty or full professional level, to build capacity and promote linkages between their home and overseas host institutions by engaging in short-term, collaborative projects.

In FY 2017, ECA will continue to seek to strengthen exchanges in parts of the world which have been underrepresented in the Fulbright Specialist Program and also to increase participation of underrepresented academic disciplines and professional fields that are relevant for the priorities of the U.S. embassy, the Fulbright commission, and the host institution.

Funding Information: The approximate total funding is $3,720,000.
