The Fulbright Specialist Program, a program of the U.S. Department of State and part of the larger Fulbright Program, provides U.S. citizens who are established professionals or academics with opportunities to engage in a short-term, project-based exchange at institutions in more than 150 eligible countries and other areas. More than 400 Fulbright Specialists travel abroad annually to share expertise, collaborate with colleagues overseas, and foster cross-cultural understanding. 

Specialists generally serve as expert consultants, undertaking a two- to six-week project designed by their host institution with an emphasis on education, training, or capacity-building activities such as:

  • Delivering seminars, trainings or workshops
  • Consulting on faculty or workforce development
  • Developing academic or training curricula and materials
  • Lecturing at the graduate or undergraduate level
  • Engaging in strategic or institutional planning
  • Conducting needs assessments or evaluations

University faculty, senior administrators, and highly experienced professionals, including doctors, nurses, scientists, public health officials, and epidemiologists, are encouraged to apply. The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), along with host institutions, provide Specialists with full funding to participate in Fulbright Specialist projects.
