The Worldwide Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program brings approximately 800 scholars from other countries to lecture and/or engage in post-doctoral research at U.S. colleges and universities for either a semester or full academic year.  Institutions that do not typically have opportunity to host foreign scholars are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Visiting Scholar Occasional Lecture Program provides opportunities for U.S. colleges and universities to take advantage of guest lectures by foreign Fulbright scholars who are already here on grants.  Your institution can obtain a listing of these scholars from CIES and invite them to come to your campus. CIES will pay for the guest scholar’s transportation costs to your campus.
