The U.S. Department of State and partner organization the Council for International Exchange of Scholars have announced a series of U.S. Scholar Program innovations to meet the changing needs of a diverse academic community in the United States.
Fulbright Flex Awards will engage U.S. scholars currently unable to spend extended periods of time abroad. The Fulbright Program welcomes applications from scholars who propose multiple stays of one
to three months in the host country over a period of two to three years.
Fulbright Postdoctoral and Early Career Awards are designed for postdoctoral and early career academics, will offer opportunities in a range of countries and fields. These awards present an excellent
opportunity for recently minted scholars to deepen their expertise, to acquire new skills, to work with additional resources and to make connections with others in their fields.
For 2014-2015, scholars on teaching or teaching/research grants may be eligible to receive a salary supplement stipend to bring the amount to the same level as salary, up to a maximum.
The Fulbright Teaching English as a Foreign Language opportunities for scholars specializing in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and associated fields are also now presented in a worldwide context, enabling potential applicants to examine more than 50 different programs simultaneously, basing their choice of country programs in comparison to any others for which they qualify.
