Fulbright Opportunities for UT Faculty and Administrators

The Fulbright Scholar Program awards grants to U.S. faculty, administrators and professionals to lecture, conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields, or to participate in seminars.

Each year, Fulbright awards approximately 800 teaching, research or combination teaching/research grants in over 135 countries.

UT Austin has a long history of alumni, faculty and staff receiving Fulbright awards to research a multitude of disciplines and attend specialized seminars across the world. As part of the university’s ongoing global engagement efforts, Texas Global encourages UT Austin faculty, staff, and alumni to learn more about the Fulbright U.S. Scholar program and consider applying.

The 2023-2024 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Competition is closed as the application deadline of September 15, 2023 has now passed.
