Fulbright Specialist Program grants for Australian universities
Published: Monday 22nd June 2015
2015 applications for Fulbright Specialist Program grants are open 1 July and close 30 September. The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) supports Australian universities and other educational and research institutions to host U.S. Specialists for two-six week visits as guest speakers, lecturers and/or collaborative researchers. FSP aims at the development of curriculum, the building of research links and the establishment of ongoing cooperation between Australian and U.S. educational and research institutions.
The FSP grants fund an international economy airfare and a US$200 per diem honorarium. Accommodation, meals and in-country travel are provided by the host institution. Universities with projects comprehending a vast variety of disciplines are eligible for this grant.
N.B The FSP grant is awarded to Australian educational institutions (not to U.S. Specialists directly). U.S. Specialists must register with the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) on the CIES roster to become eligible for a potential invitation from a FSP grantee (an Australian educational institution).
