To accommodate early career scholars, the Fulbright Program is offering an additional application cycle for a select number of 2015-2016 postdoctoral awards. These awards are open to U.S. scholars who have completed their doctoral degrees within the last five years. These grants provide an excellent opportunity for recent graduates to deepen their expertise, acquire new skills, and make connections with others in their fields.
Scholars will be expected to engage with graduate students in the host country through teaching activities. Grantees will also be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and basically engage in the academic community.
The application deadline is January 15, 2015. For more information about the program and the awards, visit the Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar Awards website.
