2021-2022 Fulbright Specialist Program

The deadline for 2021-2022 Fulbright Specialist Program is over.

Application Considerations

  • Host institutions must provide details regarding in-country arrangements and cost share for the Specialist in their project proposal.
  • Joint proposals by a group of Nepali institutions are strongly encouraged.
  • While applicants who have previously participated in a Fulbright exchange are eligible to participate in the Fulbright Specialist Program, preference will be given to candidates who have not previously received a Fulbright grant or had significant overseas experience.  A Specialist candidate will not be approved for a second Fulbright Specialist grant unless two years have passed from the date of completion of the previous Fulbright Specialist grant.
  • Applications are assessed by a Fulbright Commission Selection Committee. Successful applications are recommended to World Learning in the U.S., and the U.S. Department of State.  Final approval can take several weeks.
