Research Programs

Fulbright Program (For Faculty)

For more than 70 years, the US government, through the Fulbright program, has been funding US academics and professionals in pursuing international teaching and research opportunities as well as bringing academics from abroad to teach and engage in research in the US. Thousands of academics from the US and around the world have benefitted greatly from participating in this prestigious program, including a number of UAlbany faculty. It has been so successful that various other programs have been launched over the years to make participation in the Fulbright program more accessible to a broader range of academics and professionals and to people at different stages of their careers.

Applications for the Fulbright program are accepted from March 1st through August 1st. The Center for International Education and Global Strategy in collaboration with the Institute for Teaching, Learning and Academic Leadership routinely provides a workshop for faculty in early March of each year to introduce them to the Fulbright program and how to submit competitive applications. We encourage you to attend, and to explore the traditional teaching/research program as well as the many other programs Fulbright offers at this link: http://www.cies.org

Additionally, Dr. Bruce Svare (bsvare@albany.edu), professor of psychology, who has secured two Fulbright awards in the past may be contacted by any faculty member who would like to receive support in preparing applications and personal statements for the Fulbright program.
