Scholar-in-Residence Program

Through the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (S-I-R) Program, U.S. colleges and universities collaborate with scholars from other countries to assist in internationalizing U.S. campuses, curriculum and communities.

Fulbright Scholars-in-Residence teach primarily on the undergraduate level in their areas of expertise and provide a cross-cultural or international perspective to promote curriculum and program development. Their activities typically contribute to enhancing the institution’s global studies programs, interdisciplinary course/program offerings and broaden international cooperation. In addition, Scholars-in-Residence are expected to engage in both on-campus and community activities throughout the program’s duration.

Eligibility: Any accredited U.S. institution of higher learning is eligible to apply, but preference is given to Minority Serving Institutions, small liberal arts colleges and community colleges.
