US-UK Fulbright Scholar Awards, Nov 2017
Closing date: 6 Nov 2017
The Fulbright Scholar programme looks for applicants who can engage with the USA in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
We assess more than the intellectual merit of proposals. The best applications are from well-rounded applicants who can demonstrate:
Strong academic proposals and/or research projects
Ambassadorial skills and intercultural sensitivity
Genuine desire to learn more about the USA and to share aspects of British culture
Extracurricular activities and community involvement
Plans to further the Fulbright mission and give back to the UK upon returning
There are several Scholar Awards available each year. We recommend applying for an Award that best fits your experience and research/teaching interests. Examples of potential relevance to VALIDATE members include:
The Fulbright All Disciplines Award allows academics and professionals to undertake lecturing and/or research in any discipline at any accredited US university; projects can last between 3 and 12 months, but must be arranged separately between the prospective scholar and their chosen institution.
Selection committees and interview panels will be looking for clear reasons for selecting your US university preference. We expect candidates to conduct a thorough university search and to identify institutions that are a strong fit for your academic, personal and professional goals.
