The University of Iowa

Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program

Deadline: October 17

About the Program

The Worldwide Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program brings visiting scholars and professionals from abroad to lecture at U.S. colleges and universities for one semester or one academic year. Fulbright Scholars-in-Residence can have a significant impact on U.S. colleges and universities. In addition to teaching courses, scholars give campus-wide and community lectures, help initiate international programs and contribute to curriculum development. Although preference is given to proposals in the humanities or social sciences, other fields focusing on international issues will be considered.

Additional Information

Under the Scholar-in-Residence Program, interested institutions submit proposals to invite scholars to teach one or more courses and to be in residence for a semester or an academic year. Proposals are welcome from individual institutions, or from consortia of two or more institutions. Institutions may suggest suitable candidates or have the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) recruit scholars from a particular global area. Proposal guidelines and an online application form may be downloaded from the CIES website.
