Fulbright Specialist Program

Ineligible Institutions, Fields, and Activities

U.S. or U.S.-based institutions as well as for-profit companies and organizations such as businesses and corporations are ineligible to host Fulbright Specialists. 

Projects with activities focused on English as a foreign language such as designing curricula, or conducting needs assessments, teacher training, or high-level educational consultations in that field, are not eligible for the FSP.

Specialists also may not carry out personal research projects – they must carry out projects proposed by host institutions and approved by posts or commissions and ECA. 

Clinical medical research or projects involving patient contact are ineligible under Fulbright Program policy.
