The Fulbright Program

Fulbright awards grants to faculty/staff interested in lecturing, researching, or attending seminars abroad.

Here are some that community college faculty are eligible to apply to:

  • Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program: Opportunities in East Asia and the Pacific "The core Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers a spectrum of opportunities for American faculty, researchers and professionals to conduct research, lecture, and/or consult with other scholars and institutions in the East Asia Pacific region—a region considered to be the world’s growth engine in economics, politics and culture. The region endorses applications in all disciplines and non-Ph.D holders are eligible to apply."
  • Fulbright Program Seeks to Get More Community Colleges Involved in Exchanges: “U.S. State Department is doing more to make sure that faculty members and others from community colleges also benefit from the exchange program, with the goal of getting more international perspectives into community-college campuses and classrooms”.
