About the Program

The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP), part of the larger Fulbright Program, was established in 2001 by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA).  World Learning is the cooperating organization implementing the program worldwide. The program is a field-driven initiative in which Nepali host institutions conceptualize and design projects of interest within an eligible discipline that represent a priority for their respective organizations. These projects are then matched with a highly qualified U.S. academic or professional, who shares their expertise and assists with strengthening linkages between U.S. and foreign host institutions. Participating foreign host institutions benefit by:

  • Gaining global perspectives from experienced U.S. academics and professionals;
  • Executing projects that require a rapid response or flexible timeline through short-term, year-round exchanges; and
  • Building sustained relationships with individuals and institutions in the U.S.

The Nepal Fulbright Commission announces applications open for the 2021-2022 Fulbright Specialist Program to support Nepali institutions through grants to bring U.S. Specialists in selected disciplines to Nepal for two to six weeks anytime between April 2022 and September 30, 2022. Depending on the availability of funding, the Commission will provide up to 5 grants to Nepali institutions.
