Program Components:


Research Grants: Fulbright Visiting Scholar program provides primarily six-to-nine-month research or grants to scholars in all disciplines to conduct research and needs assessment related to institution or program development, consult with administrators and instructors of post-secondary institutions in faculty development, and develop and/or assess academic curricula or educational materials.


Lecturing Grants: This program also offers one- to two-semester lecturing grants to Bangladeshi scholars and academics interested in teaching at an American university. Candidates interested in lecturing grants must have extensive teaching experience and a confirmed invitation to lecture at a host institution to be considered for a Fulbright grant.


During the program tenure, the Fulbright Visiting Scholars in the United States can pursue the following opportunities to engage in stimulating topics, meet other Fulbrighters, broaden their intellectual networks, and experience the diversity of higher education in the United States.


Outreach Lecturing Fund: The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) provides funding for campuses to virtually host Fulbright Visiting Scholars, already in the United States, for short-term speaking engagements. The OLF award is designed to enrich both institutions and Visiting Scholars through lectures that will promote academic disciplines and cultural understanding. Additionally, the OLF seeks to build relationships and partnerships with institutions that are currently underrepresented within the Fulbright Program as a means to promote future opportunities. These priority institutions include minority-serving institutions, community colleges, small liberal arts colleges, women’s colleges and art colleges, and geographically underrepresented institutions.


The Enrichment Program: The Enrichment Program offers Fulbright Visiting Scholars a variety of activities that enhance their exchange programs. Enrichment programs help scholars to navigate the complexities of the exchange program, access the network of Fulbright Scholars, enhance their professional skills, and consider topics of global importance. These activities are designed to enable scholars to better experience America and to further the Fulbright Program’s goal of increasing mutual understanding between the people of the United States and people of other countries.
