2020-2021 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program Competition Opens

The 2020-2021 competition for the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is now open.  For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers teaching, research and combination teaching/research awards in over 130 countries.  Opportunities are available for Georgia College faculty and administrators in all disciplines.  The application deadline is September 16th, 2019.  Award opportunities may researched through Fulbright’s extensive Catalog of Awards.  Highlights from the over 450 awards offered in this year’s competition include:

Postdoctoral and Early Career Awards
Fulbright provides many excellent opportunities for early-career scholars to deepen their expertise, acquire new skills, work with additional resources, and to make connections with others in their fields, all while also serving as cultural ambassadors.  The early-career subset of Fulbright awards are open to U.S. scholars who have recently completed their doctoral degree – typically within the five previous years.  Postdoctoral awards are available in all fields of study, from STEM, to the arts, humanities and the social sciences. 

New Awards for 2020-2021
Several countries have added brand new award opportunities for the 2020-2021 competition:

The Iceland-Greece Joint Award on Economic Crisis Management is a six-month research grant (three months in Iceland, three months in Greece) focused on macroeconomics, public policy, international relations, and other related disciplines. 

The Central Asia region is offering two grants for Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as for the training of English teachers and faculty. Scholars will have the opportunity to conduct workshops to build assessment capacity and assist with curriculum development.

Romania is seeking experts in Media Literacy and Cybersecurity to teach and/or conduct research at select institutions across the country for three to five months. 

Fulbright Canada Research Chairs are targeted, specialized opportunities for scholars to be part of a host faculty.  Fulbright Canada Chairs conduct their own research, work collaboratively with new colleagues, and engage with students, and engage the local community. 

The Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellowship at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev offers three grants to support research in any discipline at one of Israel's leading research universities.
