1. Host Institution: Name of Institution *

The host institution must be a degree-granting, post-secondary academic institution, comparable to a U.S. college or university in order to promote an important program goal of fostering linkages between U.S. and non-U.S. academic institutions of higher education. Additionally, institutions that provide an educational focus to their programming will also be considered. Such hosts may include Government-related Institutions, Cultural institutions, Medical institutions and Research organizations/Think tanks. Please consult with ECA/A/E program officer Patty Bass with questions about institutional eligibility.

Part III. Project Guidelines

Instructions:

The basic project guidelines are as follows:

One country per project: A Fulbright Specialist project is restricted to one country. All project activities must take place in the country requesting the project.

Length of project: The length of a Fulbright Specialist project must be for a minimum of 14 days and a maximum of 42 days, including travel days and weekends.

Time between projects for same specialist: A Fulbright Specialist grantee who has had one Fulbright Specialist grant is eligible to receive a second Fulbright Specialist grant no less than two years after the completion of the proceeding grant, provided he or she has not reached the lifetime maximum for of two Fulbright Specialist grants in a lifetime (see the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board policies at: http://www.cies.org/message1.htm)

  • Serial project: A serial grant may consist of a series of visits only within a one-year period (12 months). The one-year period is calculated by adding 12 months from the start date of the first visit through the end date of the final serial visit. When requesting a serial grant, explanation and justification should be given as to the necessity of multiple visits.

  • A Specialist may receive a Fulbright Specialist grant(s) to a single country for a maximum of 6 weeks (42 days) total within this one-year period. The grantee may make 1-3 serial visits not exceeding 6 weeks total. Each visit must be a minimum of 14 days. In sum, the rule for one scholar is a total of 42 days per country, per year.

  • To request a specialist for a series of visits over multiple years, a new request may be submitted the following year. However, the actual grant cannot start until two years have elapsed since the final visit of the previous grant.

  • A request for a return visit by the same specialist must be strongly justified because a key program goal is to achieve the greatest participation by U.S. scholars and professionals in the program, not to give multiple grants to the same individuals. Subsequent visits must build on the initial project, not repeat the same work, i.e. teach the same course.

9. Total Preferred Grant Length
Please indicate the total number of days requested for all visits.






10. Flexibility of Time Frame (1,000 characters)
Providing flexibility in the time frame of the requested project may result in a broader pool of candidates from which to choose. Please describe the extent, in days or months, of the host institution's flexibility.




11. If you are requesting a serial project, please explain the necessity for multiple visits. (1,000 characters)
A strong justification must be given for a serial project in order to justify the increased costs for more than one visit. Omit this question if you are not requesting a serial project. Justification is needed to send the same specialist on multiple exchange visits because an important program goal is to increase the participation of U.S. scholars and professionals in the Fulbright Program. The subsequent serial visits must build on the initial project, not repeat the same work, such as teaching the same course.

Part V. Requesting a Specific Candidate

Instructions:

FSB policy allows Commissions and Embassies to include in a program proposal or in a special submission the names of candidates in whom an institution is particularly interested.

Foreign institutions may invite such candidates to apply with the understanding that the invitation does not constitute a commitment or a preference in final consideration.


The discipline peer review committee and FSB must approve candidates before they are eligible for projects within the Fulbright Specialists Program.

Commissions, embassies and host academic institutions should encourage candidates who are not yet on the Fulbright Specialists Roster to apply via the CIES Web site: www.cies.org.specialists

It is strongly encouraged that candidates submit an application at the same time as, if not before, the project request is submitted to ECA/A/E.

For a Fulbright Specialists Program grant to be approved, the host academic institutions are expected to cover the specialist's lodging, all meals and in-country travel.
