    Fulbright Scholar Enrichment Program: Deadline August 16

    Each year more than 800 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing in the United States.  The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Enrichment program provides scholars opportunities for community and social engagement outside of their "formal" academic program and day-to-day work setting. 
    The goals of these enrichment programs are to:

    • Build cross-cultural understanding through activities that highlight U.S. culture and history, including the diversity of the U.S. and of its people, at the local, state, regional, and national levels
    • Expand professional and social networks to create a stronger Fulbright community
    • Create opportunities for the development of professional and leadership skills
    • Promote community service activities to increase the spirit of volunteerism and facilitate interactions with diverse segments of U.S. society
    • Strengthen national and global alumni networks
    • Expand outreach to promote the Fulbright Program and highlight its impact

    Selected organizations will be asked to administer programs throughout the academic year 2010-2011 to support Fulbright Visiting Scholars. Proposed enrichment activities should provide academic, professional or networking development opportunities and reflect the goals of the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Enrichment Program.  If your institution is interested in learning more about this program please visit[7] or contact Ms. Sone Loh, Senior Program Officer for Fulbright Scholar Enrichment at or (202) 686-4011. 

    Fulbright Scholar-In-Residence Program: Deadline October 15
    The objective of the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (S-I-R) Program is to bring scholars and professionals from abroad to U.S. colleges and universities in order to significantly internationalize host institution campuses and curricula. Preference is given to institutions that have infrequently hosted Visiting Scholars and that serve student populations underrepresented in international exchange programs, and/or to colleges and universities that are Minority Serving Institutions. Such institutions include: small liberal arts colleges, community colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and other minority-serving Institutions. 

    Under the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program, accredited U.S. institutions of higher education submit proposals to the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) to request Scholars for one or both terms of the academic year. Scholars teach and consult in area studies programs, interdisciplinary programs that focus on global issues or courses where participation of a foreign scholar can provide a cross-cultural or international perspective.  For more information, visit:[8] 

    Fulbright International Education Administrators Seminar to Japan and Korea: Deadline November 1

    The International Education Administrators (IEA) Program helps international education professionals and senior higher education officials from the United States create empowering connections with the societal, cultural and higher education systems of other countries.  
    Grantees have the opportunity to learn about the host country's education system from the inside out, as well as establish networks of U.S. and international colleagues.  Grantees return with enhanced ability to serve and encourage international students and prospective study-abroad students.
