Fulbright Specialist Program
The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) helps Nepali organizations solve real-life problems and training needs by connecting them with U.S. academics and professionals. The program award grants to qualified U.S. faculty and professionals, in select disciplines, to engage in short-term collaborative 2 to 6 week projects at host institutions in Nepal. International travel costs and a stipend are funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Nepali host institutions cover grantee in-country expenses or provide in-kind services.
Project activities focus on strengthening and supporting the development needs of host institutions abroad and do not fund personal or clinical medical research and related projects involving patient contact. Eligible activities include
· short-term lecturing,
· conducting seminars,
· teacher training,
· special conferences or workshops,
· collaborating on curriculum planning, institutional and/or faculty development
Eligible institutions wanting to host a Fulbright Specialist should submit project applications through the Fulbright Commission. Projects must be reviewed and approved by the Commission and the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
