FULBRIGHT PROGRAMS for Faculty and Other Scholars

For nearly 70 years, American academics, administrators, and other professionals have taught, conducted research, and shared their expertise with partners abroad through the Fulbright Scholar and Fulbright Specialist programs. UNH has been well-represented among those scholars.

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers opportunities for scholars in all disciplines to advance their research and teaching interests, promote mutual understanding, and collaborate with scholars abroad with more than 800 awards annually to 135+ countries. Award types include Scholar awards, Distinguished Scholar awards, Postdoctoral awards and International Education Administrator Awards. Opportunities range from 2 to 12 months in length and include flexible options for multiple shorter visits to many host countries.

The Fulbright Specialist Program pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise, strengthen institutional linkages, hone their skills, gain international experience, and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions on a short-term, on-demand basis.
