Fulbright Specialist Program

The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP), part of the larger Fulbright Program, was established in 2001 by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The program is a field-driven initiative in which foreign host institutions conceptualize and design projects of interest within an eligible discipline that represent a priority for their respective organizations. These projects are then paired with a highly qualified U.S. academic or professional, who shares their expertise and assists with strengthening linkages between U.S. and foreign host institutions. Participating foreign host institutions benefit by:

  • Gaining global perspectives from experienced U.S. academics and professionals;
  • Executing projects that require a rapid response or flexible timeline through short-term, year-round exchanges; and
  • Building sustained relationships with individuals and institutions in the U.S.

Fulbright Specialist Program Activities
The Fulbright Specialist Program encourages host institutions to tailor projects to their own needs. However, all projects should have an education or training focus. Due to the short-term nature of the exchange, projects should have concrete objectives that can be achieved over the course of the Specialist’s visit. Past Specialists have supported host institutions by conducting activities such as:

  • Delivering a seminar or workshop
  • Consulting on faculty or workforce development
  • Developing academic or training curricula and materials
  • Lecturing at the graduate or undergraduate level
  • Conducting needs assessments or evaluations for a program or institution

Note: Personal research projects, including clinical medical research or projects involving patient contact, are not eligible for funding under the Fulbright Specialist Program.

Program Parameters

  • All exchanges must range from 14 to 42 days in length, including weekends, holidays and travel days.
  • Projects are restricted to one country, and all project activities must take place in the country requesting the project.
  • Each project is limited to only one Fulbright Specialist grantee.

Multi-Visit (Serial Projects)

  • If a host institution would benefit by having the Fulbright Specialist visit the host institution more than once, host institutions may apply for their project to be Multi-Visit. Please note that the majority of approved projects are not Multi-Visit, and host institutions will need to provide a strong justification for why this approach would strengthen project outcomes. Please find below some general program parameters for Multi-Visit projects. o Multi-Visit projects cannot include more than a total of three trips.
  • All trips must be completed within a one-year period by the same Fulbright Specialist. The one-year period is calculated by adding 12 months from the initial start date of the first visit through the end date of the final visit.
  • Each visit must be a minimum of 14 days, and the total number of days across all visits cannot exceed six weeks (42 days).
  • However, please note that since the Danish-American Fulbright Commission has a total of five Fulbright Specialist allocation per year, one-visit projects are preferred in Denmark.

Identifying Fulbright Specialists
Host institutions are required to identify U.S. academics or professionals to serve as their project’s Fulbright Specialist prior to submitting their project proposal. Please note that for the identified candidate the following conditions must be met:

  • The individual must be approved by the Danish-American Fulbright Commission
  • The individual must be approved to join the Fulbright Specialist Roster; and
  • The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board must approve that individual to be matched with the host institution’s specific project.

Program Funding and Cost Share
The U.S. Department of State typically covers roundtrip, economy class international airfare, enrollment in a limited health benefits program, and a daily honorarium for participating Fulbright Specialists. In general, host institutions should be prepared to provide the Specialist with lodging, meals, and in-country transportation, either through monetary or in-kind contributions, throughout their full stay in country. The stipend for in-country transportation should allow the Specialist to travel to and from their lodging and project activity site as well as allow the Specialist to conduct local activities such as grocery shopping or visiting a local market, pharmacy, etc.

Application Process for Host Institutions
First step for the prospective host institutions is to contact the Danish-American Fulbright Commission on e-mail: info@fulbright.dk.

Then the prospective host institutions must submit a project proposal via World Learning’s online portal here. The online portal accepts project proposals on a rolling basis throughout the year.

After a project proposal is received, it will be reviewed by the Danish-American Fulbright Commission. Only project proposals that are completed in their entirety will be reviewed. Please note that Danish-American Fulbright Commission typically receives more project proposals from prospective host institutions than it is able to support with limited funding. Therefore, not all proposals submitted will be approved. (Up to five per year.)

If your project proposal is approved by Danish-American Fulbright Commission it must then be approved by multiple offices within the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Contact Information
Prospective host institutions should direct all questions to Danish-American Fulbright Commission on e-mail: info@fulbright.dk.
