Scholars may engage in collaborative research or combine teaching and research activities in their area of specialization. Activities may also include consulting on curriculum, program and faculty development and conducting workshops. Applicants with a teaching/research project may determine the percentage of the grant dedicated to each activity and should define this in the project proposal. The activities can be conducted in the same academic year or over the course of two consecutive years and may consist of one multi-country trip, two or three single country trips or two dual-country trips. In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary research or teaching activities. Monthly benefits will follow the rates for Core Fulbright U.S. Scholar grants in each proposed country. Dependent benefits are not available under the Fulbright Global Scholar Award. Final grant amounts will be determined prior to the start of the 20-21 academic year and are subject to the availability of congressionally appropriated funds. The United States Department of State reserves the right to alter, without notice, participating countries, number of awards and allowances.
