Scholar and Professional Awards

The Fulbright Awards Programme is the only organisation that offers scholarships for academic work in any subject, at any accredited US university. In this Award category, approximately 20 grants are offered to UK academics and professional to undertake lecturing, research, or a combination of the two for a period of three to twelve months. Candidates choose and make arrangements with US host institutions directly and independently.

Benefits

Grants in this category vary in amount and are usually paid in instalments directly to the grantee, the first of which is typically given just prior to departure from the UK. Funding is intended as a contribution towards any institutional fees, travel to/from the US, accommodation and general maintenance costs while in the US. A number of memberships, sickness and accident benefit coverage, and visa sponsorship are also included. There is substantial pre-departure support, including a Finalists Workshop in March and a 2-3 day Orientation Programme in July. Once on-the-ground in the US, further support is offered by the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), including additional travel grant opportunities to accept guest lecturing invitations at other US institutions.

We currently offer the following Scholar Awards:
