Fulbright Scholar-In-Residence Programme
The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Programme is for US academic institutions to host New Zealand (or other foreign) academics to teach and internationalise their campus, curriculum and communities. Preference is given to institutions that otherwise have limited opportunities to participate in the Fulbright Scholar Programme. Approximately 45 awards valued at up to US$26,100 plus travel and allowances are granted each year, towards one semester or full academic year of teaching, curriculum development and campus activities
Closing date: 14 October annually
The Fulbright Scholars-in-Residence programme is especially appropriate for small liberal arts colleges, minority-serving institutions, and community colleges, many of which do not often have the opportunity to host visiting scholars.
Fulbright Scholars-in-Residence can have a significant impact on US colleges and universities. In addition to teaching courses, scholars give campus-wide and community lectures, help initiate international programs and contribute to curriculum development. Although preference is given to proposals in the humanities or social sciences, other fields focusing on international issues will be considered.
Institutions can propose a specific candidate, or the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) can work with Fulbright New Zealand and/or the US Embassy in Wellington to recruit a scholar whose background is appropriate for the proposed activities.
