The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP)
March 31, 2022

The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) is a field-driven initiative in which foreign host institutions conceptualize and design projects of interest within an eligible discipline that represent a priority for their respective organizations. These projects are then paired with a highly qualified U.S. academic or professional, who shares expertise and assists with strengthening linkages between U.S. and foreign host institutions. Participating foreign host institutions benefit by:

  • Gaining global perspectives from experienced U.S. academics and professionals.
  • Executing projects that require a rapid response or flexible timeline through short-term, year-round exchanges; and
  • Building sustained relationships with individuals and institutions in the United States.

Program recruitment is on a rolling basis; final applications should be submitted by the end of September.
