Outreach Lecturing Fund

The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) provides funding for campuses to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars, who are already in the United States, for short-term speaking engagements. Special consideration is given to campuses that have not previously participated in the Fulbright Scholar Program.

The OLF is a travel grant that facilitates short term (two to six days) campus visits by scholars to:

  • Share their specific research interests
  • Speak on the history and culture of their countries
  • Become better acquainted with U.S. higher education
  • Exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty and community organizations
  • Create linkages between their home and host institutions

In addition to programming the visit, institutions are asked to cover the following costs for the scholar: local transportation, lodging and meals.
