Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague


The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq and the Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Programs for Lebanon and the Palestinian Territories are designed to bring junior Iraqi, Lebanese, and Palestinian scholars to U.S. host institutions for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. These ten-week programs are designed to equip grantees with the knowledge and tools needed to build the capacity of universities in Iraq, Lebanon, and the Palestinian Territories and to advance the education of future generations. In addition, these programs lay the foundation for the grantees and their U.S. hosts to develop long-term institutional relationships and to identify areas of cooperation that can be sustained beyond the grant period.

Proposals from U.S. host institutions are being sought to implement the ten-week summer programs. Successful proposals will provide participating institutions with a unique opportunity to establish lasting relationships with faculty members at universities in Iraq, Lebanon, and the Palestinian Territories. The program dates, academic cohort disciplines, and number anticipated numbers of scholars vary across the participating countries and territories. Institutions are invited to submit a proposal to host a Fulbright scholar cohort from one of the available programs. 

Objectives
  • Build higher education capacity in Iraq, Lebanon, and the Palestinian Territories through faculty development and mentoring for junior scholars
  • Foster long-term collaboration and institutional linkages between Iraqi, Lebanese, Palestinian Scholars, and U.S. academics
  • Promote mutual understanding between Iraqi, Lebanese, Palestinian Scholars, and Americans by facilitating the scholar’s engagement with the broader host campus community
