Domestic Faculty, Researchers & Staff

Fulbright offers close to 500 awards to faculty, researchers and staff members from U.S. institutions to teach, conduct research or both through international exchange. These programs cover a broad array of disciplines and include seminars for administrators interested in international education.  Many of these programs offer great flexibility to accommodate teaching schedules and can vary in length from two weeks to a year; they can include multiple short visits to one country or multiple countries with intervening time spent at UC San Diego. The Fulbright online awards catalog helps one easily identify opportunities available for teaching and/or research in specific disciplines and specific countries or regions.
