Fulbright Global Scholar Award

For general questions about the Fulbright Scholar Program, visit our FAQs page.

Can I go to three countries in the same world region? 

For the Global Scholar Award, candidates must propose project activities that will take place in two to three countries in at least two different world regions. World regions are defined as Sub-Saharan Africa, East Asia and the Pacific, Europe-Eurasia, Middle East and North Africa, South and Central Asia, and Western Hemisphere. Global Scholar Award projects which include countries from only one world region will not be accepted. If you are interested in a project focused on only one world region, please be encouraged to apply to one of the following multi-country awards:

  • South and Central Asia Regional Research Program
  • Africa Regional Research Program
  • Middle East and North Africa Regional Research Program
  • ASEAN Research Program
  • Cross-Strait Studies Research Program
  • Fulbright-Carlos Rico Award for North American Studies
  • Fulbright-Schuman European Union Affairs Program
  • Fulbright-Schuman Innovation Award

What are the stipends for these awards? 

The monthly stipend rate for Global Scholar awards will vary by country, grant activity and academic/professional rank for teaching projects.  Please refer to the All Disciplines country award description for stipend amounts for each proposed host country. All Global Scholars will receive a minimum total monthly stipend of $3,500.  Dependent benefits are not available for Global Scholars.

Can I do different activities during each of my grant segments, i.e. teach in one country, do research in another country? 

Yes, you can propose different activity types in each country. However, applicants should explain how segments relate to/build on each other. All of the segments should be interrelated in some way. 

What is the language requirement for Global? 

Please confirm with each host institution the language of instruction for proposed teaching. For research grant activity, language fluency sufficient to complete the research project is required. For applicants without local language proficiency, feasibility of conducting research must be demonstrated in the project statement.

What is a Professional Project? 

For more information on Professional Projects, please click here.

Can for-profit organizations serve as hosts institutions?    

For-profit organizations may not serve as hosts. Appropriate hosts might include a non-profit organization, artist residency, studio collective, governmental agency, museum, professional association, cultural organization, K-12 institution, university, college, language institute, research institute, laboratory, think tank or foundation.

Can applicants propose projects that would involve visiting institutions for the purpose of starting study abroad relationships/MOUs for their home institution?  

No. Applicants who serve as international education professionals and senior higher education officials should consider applying for an International Education Administrator (IEA) seminar to fulfill these types of projects. We hope that MOUs and study abroad relationships are an outcome from a Fulbright grant, but this should not be the sole purpose of a grant. 

Do I need to propose specific dates for each country in my application?

Each proposed country segment should have a clearly defined grant start and end date (month and year), grant length, and number of Flex segments. Should you receive the Global Scholar Award, your grant duration in each host country will be based on your proposed grant length and country visit length which should total a minimum of three months and maximum of six months (at least one consecutive month in each host country is required). A proposed timeline should be included in the Award Details and within the Project Statement. Should you be selected and your grant start and end dates need to be adjusted, the Fulbright program will work with you and the relevant hosts to try to accommodate.

Dr. Babenchuk headshot

Dr. Yaroslava Babenchuk is leading a multi-faceted career combining her work as a higher education administrator at Suffolk County Community College with active engagement in Performing Arts management research and practice globally.
In recent years, Yaroslava’s research/project work focused on developing new approaches to planning the design and construction of new Performing Arts facilities. As audiences change, technologies penetrate the art form and everyday life, and cities around the world focus more and more on developing spaces for their communities to engage, create, and be together there appeared a need to think in a more complex way about what the future Performing Arts facilities will be like. In an effort to address this question, Yaroslava over the last 4 years engaged into multiple conversations about the future of Performing Arts spaces with leading architecture firms (Zaha Hadid Architects, Foster + Partners, Diamond Schmitt, Henning Larsen Architects, to name a few), operators of recently designed and constructed Performing Arts facilities (HARPA (Iceland), Brooklyn Academy of Music, National Forum of Music (Poland), and more), organizations that provide various support and services to Performing Arts organizations (Arup, ISPA, Therme Art). Babenchuk will utilize the Fulbright Global Scholar award to continue and advance her work on this topic in Romania and Singapore.

Previosly, Dr.Babenchuk produced live shows internationally, worked for major Performing Arts festivals around the world (Golden Lion Festival (Ukraine), Avignon Festival (France), “Baltic House” International Theatre Festival (Russia), Sibiu International Theatre Festival (Romania)), led special projects at the International Renaissance Foundation (Ukraine) etc.

Betül Başaran headshot

Betül Başaran is Professor of Religious Studies and Coordinator of the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at St. Mary's College of Maryland. Her primary area of expertise is the social, economic and legal history of the Ottoman Empire during the 18th and 19th centuries. She is the author of Selim III, social control and policing in Istanbul at the end of the eighteenth century: between crisis and order (Brill, 2014) and has published a number of book chapters on the artisans and urban dynamics of Istanbul. Her Fulbright research is about the life and work of Princess Niloufer who belonged to the Ottoman dynasty and was condemned to life-long exile at the age of six after the collapse of the empire following World War I. Her life is a fascinating story of exile from Turkey to the French Riviera, followed by royal glamor in India as the daughter-in-law of Hyderabad’s last independent ruler, where she evolved from foreign bride into a cultural ambassador dedicated to women’s empowerment. Her transnational and cross-cultural journey presents a unique perspective to investigate the intertwined themes of international politics, religion, royalty, and Muslim women’s agency during a turbulent period of major social and political transformations. For the project, Betül will conduct research in the UK and in India.

Matthew Bramble headshot

Dr. Matthew S. Bramble is a former NIH Fogarty Global Health Fellow, where he was based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and a Staff Scientist in the Dept. of Genetic Medicine Research at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington D.C.

Brazilian Beans and Italian Machines: A Global Tale of Caffé Culture
“Brazilian Beans and Italian Machines” investigates the history of coffee culture across metropole, work site, and colony during the Fascist ventennio (1922-1945).  The project will analyze seasonal agricultural practices within a larger framework for botanical colonization to show how totalitarian politics impacted people, as well as the coffee trees they tended.  Coffee provides a novel framework of to connect interwar histories of Italy, Brazil, and East Africa that have previously been explored independently.  By untangling the interwar trade of beans and bodies across different world regions, this project brings to light an untold story of imperial aggression and caffeinated resistance.

Alan Kaufman headshot

Alan Jay Kaufman is a Geobiologist at the University of Maryland who studies the co-evolution of life and environment.  Through field and laboratory studies of the stratigraphy, paleontology, and geochemistry of sedimentary rocks that accumulated across the most significant transitions in early Earth history, Kaufman's integrated research has shed light on:

  • The Great Oxidation Event (when atmospheric oxygen rose dramatically some 2.3 billion years ago) and its biological consequences;
  • The extremes of climatic and environmental change associated with episodic Snowball Earth ice ages at both ends of the Proterozoic Eon;
  • The Ediacaran Period evolution of macroscopic life in the aftermath of the greatest recorded perturbation of the carbon cycle;
  • And the Cambrian Explosion of Animals.  

Kaufman's research has carried him to far away places with strange sounding names, including Namibia, Siberia, and Australia where his Fulbright Global Scholar award will support his discovery of the earliest sea shells and their first appearance in the immediate aftermath of dramatic environmental changes in the world oceans over 570 million years ago.

Avidan Meyerstein headshot

Avi Meyerstein is the founder and president of the Alliance for Middle East Peace (ALLMEP). He has spent nearly the last 20 years working as a social and business entrepreneur, non-profit leader, and Washington, DC attorney.
In 2003, Avi brought together dozens of NGOs to join forces in a single umbrella coalition, creating ALLMEP. On behalf of the coalition, he then led a team of volunteer attorneys to develop proposals and advocacy strategies to significantly expand resources and scale up Israeli-Palestinian people-to-people activities. Their advocacy resulted in over $230 million in annual U.S. funding for P2P activities around the world.
Avi also proposed, launched, and has shepherded the initiative to create an international fund for Israeli-Palestinian peace. Those efforts most recently led to the passage by Congress of the Nita M. Lowey Middle East Partnership for Peace Act of 2020, which provides $250 million over 5 years for joint economic and people-to-people projects.
Avi has led ALLMEP through several stages of growth and organizational development, including spearheading its early communications, development, and public policy strategies and hiring and working with its professional leadership. He continues to lead ALLMEP's board as its president.
He lives outside Washington, DC with his wife, Dana, and three daughters.

Jennifer Powers headshot

Dr. Jennifer Powers is a Professor in the Departments of Ecology, Evolution & Behavior and Plant Biology & Microbial Biology at the University of Minnesota.  She received her PhD in Biology from Duke University in 2001 and then completed postdoctoral studies at the State University of New York- Stony Brook and the University of Minnesota.  Her research program focuses on understanding how land-use and climate change affect biogeochemical cycles, ecosystem processes and forest dynamics in tropical landscapes.  Much of her work over the past twenty years has centered on seasonally dry tropical forests, which have received less attention but are more threatened than tropical rain forests.  Together with her students and network of collaborators, they have investigated these questions from hierarchical scales—from the microbe to the biome, using a diverse toolkit that includes long-term observations, large-scale manipulative field experiments and simulation modeling. The objective of Fulbright work is to lay the foundations for a synthetic book on the ecology of seasonally dry tropical forests by visiting colleagues and collaborators in Australia, Brazil, and Cambodia.

Sonia Rocca headshot

Sonia Rocca - I have been a language educator for over a quarter of a century in three different countries. In my native country, Italy, I taught French and English; in Britain, I taught French and Italian, and currently I am teaching Italian at the Lycée Français de New York.

I founded MOBILLE (Mobile Language Learning Experience) International Conference. I am profoundly honored to be a Fulbright Global Scholar. I will be working with language educators in Japan, Kazakhstan, and Uruguay, exploring how technology has affected their practices and identities, collaborating on researching technology enhanced learning and teaching in their classrooms, and ultimately encouraging them to verbalize their research at professional forums. I am looking forward to experiencing the language and culture of these countries, as well as building long-lasting fruitful collaborations.

Lucy Solomon headshot

Lucy HG Solomon is an associate professor in CSUSM’s department of Art, Media, and Design who works at the intersection of art and science. In her Global Fulbright project, A Pan-Microbiological Portrait of the Arctic, the Andes, and the Amazon, she will look at the specific microbiology of distant terrains to tell a visual story that connects them all. An artist who often collaborates with scientists, she looks forward to working with collaborating biologists and artists to tell a macro story about micro-connections—a story that now has more layers because of the pandemic. The co-founder of two art collectives, The League of Imaginary Scientists and Cesar & Lois, Lucy has exhibited along with her collectives in museums and cultural spaces around the globe. Cesar & Lois won the 2018 Lumen Prize in Artificial Intelligence for Degenerative Cultures, an artwork that crosses biological and human systems and proposes AI based on the logic of microbiological organisms. Their work was selected for Singapore’s Global Digital Art Prize Biennial in 2019 and as part of Edital CoMciência, an exhibition of international artists who integrate art, science and technology, at MM Gerdau in Brazil.

Aimee Tallian headshot

Aimee Tallian - Originally from the Chicago area, Aimee moved west when she was 19 to work as a wildlife technician in Yellowstone National Park. There, she discovered a passion for both wildlife and ecosystem interactions. She stayed in Yellowstone for over 10 years researching and managing wolves, bears, and bison before returning to graduate school. Aimee received a Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology from Utah State University, where her research focused on wolf-bison interactions in Yellowstone, and wolf-brown bear interactions in North America and Scandinavia. She is currently working on numerous research and science communication projects with several universities and non-profits across multiple countries. Aimee’s research generally focuses on large carnivores, predator-prey interactions, animal behavior, and socio-economic ecosystems. However, her true passion lies in making science accessible to the general public, especially children, and has involved in a variety of broader impact projects. Her Fulbright Fellowship, Foraging in a Landscape of Risk: The Predatory Behavior of Large Carnivores, seeks to understand how the behavior of large cats at and around their kill sites is affected by humans.

Sharon Tennyson headshot

Sharon Tennyson is Professor in the Department of Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University. She holds a PhD in economics from Northwestern University, and her primary research focus is on consumer behaviors and consumer wellbeing in insurance markets. Dr. Tennyson’s Fulbright research on “Disaster Risk Financing and Disaster Resilience in the Caribbean” studies the effects and limitations of disaster insurance programs in promoting disaster resilience, and seeks to identify potential governance, regulatory and educational avenues for improving disaster insurance and disaster resilience for vulnerable populations in the region. The work is in partnership with University of West Indies in Mona, Jamaica, and the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII) hosted by United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) in Bonn, Germany.

I. India Thusi headshot

Professor Thusi is an Associate Professor of Law at Delaware Law School. Her research examines racial and sexual hierarchies as they relate to policing, race, and gender. Her articles and essays have been published or are forthcoming in the Harvard Law Review, NYU Law Review, Northwestern Law Review (twice), Georgetown Law Journal, Cornell Law Review Online, and Utah Law Review.

Thusi’s research is inextricably connected to her previous legal experience at organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union, Human Rights Watch, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and—most recently—The Opportunity Agenda, a social justice communication lab that collaborates to effect lasting policy and culture change. She served as a federal law clerk to two social justice giants: the Honorable Robert L. Carter, who sat on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and was the lead counsel for the NAACP in Brown v. Board of Education; and the Honorable Damon J. Keith, who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and is lauded for his prominent civil rights jurisprudence. She also clerked for Justice van der Westhuizen at the Constitutional Court of South Africa, the country’s highest court.
Among other acknowledgements throughout her career, Thusi was selected as a Fulbright U.S. Global Scholar for 2020-2022. Her paper “Reality Porn” was selected for the 2020 Stanford/Harvard/Yale Junior Faculty Forum, and she was recognized as a Top 40 Rising Young Lawyer by the American Bar Association in 2019. Thusi has received a W.E.B. Dubois Fellowship at Harvard University, the Andrew W. Mellon Doctoral Fellowship in the Humanities, and was named a Next Generation African Scholar by the Social Science Research Council. She recently drafted a discussion guide for the "American Son" play, starring Kerry Washington, which was featured on the Tonight Show and provides guidance for talking about race and policing; and her criminal justice policy report Transforming the System was recognized as a must-read about policing by the Obama Foundation.

YuYe Tong headshot

Dr. YuYe J. Tong is a professor of chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and director of the Environmental Metrology & Policy Program at Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA. He obtained his BS and MS in nuclear physics from Fudan University, Shanghai China and PhD in experimental condensed matter physics from l’École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. His research focuses primarily on fundamental electrocatalysis of anode or cathode reactions related to clean-energy-generating fuel cells and methane and carbon dioxide electro-conversion to value-adding chemicals. While the list of his interests beyond professional activities can be long, on top of it are down-hill skiing, traveling and fishing.

Asim Zia headshot

Asim Zia's research, teaching and outreach activities focus on advancing the sustainability and resilience of integrated socio-environmental systems. He has led NSF, USDA and McArthur foundation funded Team Science projects aimed at developing computational models of Social Ecological Systems, Complex Adaptive Systems and Coupled Natural and Human Systems. Foresight generated from these computational models is used widely to enable early warnings of systemic risks, design early actions and anticipatory policies, configure governance systems and implement adaptive management. Asim Zia is serving as a Professor of Public Policy and Computer Science in the Department of Community Development and Applied Economics, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Computer Science, at the University of Vermont (UVM). He is Director of the Institute for Environmental Diplomacy and Security (IEDS) and a founding Co-Director of the Social Ecological Gaming and Simulation (SEGS) lab at the UVM. He has recently served a 3-year term on scientific review committee of the national socio-environmental synthesis center (SESYNC), acting as an academic editor for PLOS One since 2014, and serving a 3-year term as co-editor-in-chief of Complexity, Governance and Networks . He has a Ph.D. in Public Policy from the Georgia Institute of Technology; recipient of 2004-2005 best dissertation award from the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management, a post-doctoral fellowship from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (2004-2006), and serving as a senior research fellow with the Earth System Governance project. He was recently appointed as a Fulbright Global Scholar to lead a project on “Securing Clean Water in Transboundary Indus, Jordan and Amazon Basins through Science and Environmental Diplomacy.”
