Through the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) Program, U.S. colleges and universities collaborate with scholars from other countries to assist in internationalizing U.S. campuses, curriculum and communities. Fulbright SIRs teach primarily on the undergraduate level in their areas of expertise and provide a cross cultural or international perspective to promote curriculum and program development. Their activities typically enhance the institution’s international/global studies programs, interdisciplinary course/program offerings and broaden international cooperation. In addition, Fulbright SIRs are expected to engage in on-campus and community activities in various ways throughout the program’s duration.
The host institution benefits from the expertise provided, and the Scholar attains experience in the U.S. higher education arena. The community, through the institution, provides the Visiting Scholar with opportunities to participate in speaking engagements, community meetings and other grassroots activities. Through this, the institution can diversify and internationalize the experiences of – and build goodwill among – the community. The SIR Program promotes cultural and intellectual diversity among the institution and the wider community.
