FULBRIGHT – SCIENTIFIC MOBILITY FOR U.S. SCHOLARS AND PROFESSIONALS

Application Deadline: August 1, 2013

The U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) are pleased to announce that 49 grants are available in the 2014-15 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program competition for U.S. academics, professionals, and researchers to teach and/or conduct research in Brazil.

Emerging from the Education Partnership for the 21st Century, the governments of the United States and Brazil, through the U.S.-Brazil Fulbright Commission, have expanded teaching and research exchange opportunities for faculty and mid-career researchers in the U.S. in the areas of science, technology and innovation through the Fulbright-Scientific Mobility core and Distinguished Chair awards.

U.S. scholars will be affiliated with top Brazilian universities and research centers in their areas of specialization, fostering increased cooperation and institutional collaboration between applied researchers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Proficiency in Portuguese or Spanish is not required for Fulbright-Scientific Mobility applicants.

Other opportunities for U.S. academics and professionals include grants in Social Sciences and Humanities, as well as Distinguished Chair awards in the following fields: American Studies; Environmental Sciences and Engineering; Oil and Gas Sciences and Engineering; and Visual Arts.

This past spring, CIES hosted a webinar on Fulbright Opportunities for U.S. Scholars to Brazil; feel free to listen to the podcast at the Fulbright Scholar website.
