A number of programs and grants are available to applicants in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The Fulbright Specialist Program, which provides grants for U.S. faculty members and professionals to engage in short-term collaborative projects with higher education institutions in over 150 countries, is seeking applicants in the disciplines of agriculture, computer science and information technology, environmental science. U.S. faculty and professionals apply to join a Roster of Specialists for a three year term. Roster candidates are reviewed by peers in the same discipline, and by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
“The Fulbright was a great opportunity for me to expand my international scientific work and made me feel more comfortable pursuing opportunities abroad. Before Fulbright I felt that moving to a new country was reserved for select people and extremely difficult to do. Post-Fulbright I know that is simply untrue; moving abroad is no different than moving to a different state.”
