Fulbright Global Scholar Award

Global Scholars

The Fulbright Global Scholar Award allows U.S. academics and professionals to engage in multi-country, trans-regional projects. As a truly worldwide award, U.S. scholars will be able to propose research or combined teaching/research activity in two to three countries with flexible schedule options; trips can be conducted within one academic year or spread over two consecutive years. For more information and examples on the grant schedule, please see below. 

Grant Schedule 

Global Scholar Grant Schedule

Applications are welcome from a wide range of scholars - early career, professor emeriti, independent scholars - and from all disciplines, including those with an interdisciplinary focus.

The Fulbright Scholar Program is designed to expand and strengthen the relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of the rest of the world. To support this mission, grantees will be asked to give public talks, mentor students and otherwise engage with the host country community, in addition to their primary research or teaching/research activity.

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.
