The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) Program brings scholars and professionals from other countries to lecture at U.S. colleges and universities that do not often host visiting scholars. Under this program, interested U.S. institutions submit proposals to invite scholars for one or both terms of the academic year to teach courses in area studies, in inter-disciplinary programs that focus on global issues, or in courses where participation of the foreign scholar can provide a cross-cultural or international perspective. The SIR program is especially appropriate for small liberal arts colleges, minority-serving institutions and community colleges in the U.S.
How to Apply
This is a program for which U.S. institutions of higher education apply. They can either name a scholar or request recruitment of one through the Fulbright agencies worldwide. Therefore, Indian scholars should draw the SIR program to the attention of their U.S. counterparts. Further information is available on the CIES website www.cies.org/sir.
