Fulbright is the largest fellowship program for U.S. Scholars, providing over 800 awards per year for talented faculty—both tenure-line and lecturers—to conduct research, teach, or a combination of both in over 135 partner countries.  Sponsored by the U.S. State Department and funded by Congress, Fulbright provides opportunities to build knowledge and research connections, strengthen teaching skills, and forge long-lasting relationships.  There are awards for faculty in all disciplines and at all career stages.

In this presentation, Dr. Julie Taylor will discuss:

-         How Fulbright differs from other funding opportunities.

-         Why Fulbright is considered a transformative professional development opportunity.

-         The selection criteria and how to apply.

-         Ways that you can invite foreign faculty to teach, lecture, or conduct research at Morgan State.
