These grants allow highly qualified academics affiliated with Austrian institutions to visit US host institutions for a minimum of two and a maximum of four months for the purpose of teaching, research, career development, or institutional collaboration. Ideally, projects address two or more of these aspects.
Grantees visit a US institution to share their expertise, establish or strengthen institutional ties, gain international experience, and learn about American culture while building capacity at their host institution. Grantees are competitively selected based on their academic qualifications, teaching and research experience and motivation, skill sets, and ability to make a significant contribution to both their home and host institution. They should also be prepared to share information about Fulbright Austria opportunities at their home and host institutions.
While applicants from all fields are eligible, Fulbright Austria especially encourages proposals that fulfill the mission of the Fulbright Program and contribute to the better understanding of the relationship between Austria and the United States on a cultural, educational, and institutional level. Fulbright Austria welcomes proposals that reach out to underserved populations and/or contribute to knowledge transfer (“science to public”).
