Each year, the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program accepts applications from faculty and post-docs (U.S. citizens only) who are interested in doing research and/or teaching abroad. This opportunity provides valuable professional experiences to scholars while enabling them to participate in cultural and diplomatic activities during their time abroad. This sets the Fulbright experience apart from most other overseas fellowships.
Around 3-4 Yale faculty and post-docs per year typically win Fulbright U.S. Scholar awards. Any Yale faculty or post-docs who would like to pursue an award should begin the application process by visiting the Fulbright website for the relevant information. Applications are due by mid-September.
To learn more about the experiences of some of Yale’s recent Fulbright Scholars, visit the Yale News website to read the recently published article ‘Want to pursue a project abroad? Fulbright U.S. Scholar awards can help’ which profiles, among others, Sharon Chekijian (pictured at right), an assistant professor of emergency medicine at Yale who spent time at the American University of Armenia as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar.
