Please Note: This page details programs for U.S. faculty and scholars. Current students or recent graduates should review the Fulbright U.S. Student program. Current Ph.D. candidates should further review the Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad program.

Purpose

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.” With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided almost 300,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Applying

Fulbright U.S. scholar and specialist grants are administered by the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars. The Center for Global Initiatives serves as the campus home for Fulbright programs for U.S. citizens at UNC. However, all application materials are accepted directly by CIES. To read and learn more about the Fulbright scholar program, please visit the CIES website.

Application Support

The Center for Faculty Excellence can provide application support through editing assistance and mock reviews. Please contact the center’s research coordinator, Sohini Sengupta, at sengups@unc.edu to learn more.

The Center for Global Initiatives can assist UNC scholars by answering questions about the program and connecting them to the correct staff at the CIES, national administrator of the Fulbright scholar program for the State Department.
