Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program 2024-25

Visiting Scholar Program deadline- 11:59 PM November 6, 2023

J-1 Visa

Fulbright Scholars enter the U.S. on an Exchange Visitor (J-1) visa under a U.S. Department of State program and are subject to the two-year home-country residency requirement associated with the J-1 visa. Scholars/Artists are expected to reside in Nepal for two years after completion of their Fulbright grant period in the U.S. before they may apply for non-immigrant visas (H and L) as temporary workers, for permanent residence in the U.S., or as immigrants. Scholars/Artists and their dependents who have held J visas with sponsorship of more than six months are not eligible to re-enter as J-1 researchers or artists for 12 months following the program sponsorship end date.
