Scholar-in-Residence (S-I-R) Fulbright Program, USA

The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (S-I-R) Program assists U.S. higher education/research establishments in expanding international academic exchange programs. The program supports international (non-U.S.) candidates through grants for teaching at institutions that require a strong international component benefiting both the U.S. institution and the selected scholar.

  • The program is open to all accredited U.S. institutions of higher education. Non-U.S. institutions are not eligible. 
  • International scholars are eligible to serve as Scholars-in-Residence. U.S. nationals and permanent residents are not eligible.
  • Scholar teaching responsibilities are limited to a maximum of two courses per semester.
  • U.S. institutions may not host Fulbright Scholar-In-Residence participants in consecutive academic years. Therefore, an institution hosting an S-I-R in a given academic year must wait for one academic before hosting a subsequent S-I-R. 
  • Applicants who have not previously received a Scholar-in-Residence award will be given preference. 
  • Any recognized U.S. institution of higher learning, although preference is given to Minority Serving Institutions or small liberal arts colleges and other community colleges.
