Attention Historically Black College and University Faculty and Administrators:
Learn how to internationalize your campus through the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program.
The Fulbright Scholar-in Residence (S-I-R) Program enables U.S. colleges and universities to bring visiting scholars from abroad to campus for a semester or academic year. Scholars lecture, interact with students, faculty, and other members of the campus, and engage with the local community in a wide variety of ways. Scholars can be requested by name or recruited for you by U.S. Embassies and Fulbright Commissions in 150 countries around the world in a host of subject fields.
This is an excellent way to internationalize your curriculum, campus, and community and preference in this Program is given to Minority-serving Institutions, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities. To learn how to apply to host a Fulbright-Scholar-in Residence and what makes a successful application, a special webinar is being offered for MSIs, including HBCUs. It will feature program administrators and MSI representatives who have been successful S-I-R hosts.
Date and time: April 25, 2018, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm EDT.
