Bring the expertise of a senior U.S. scholar to your institution through a short-term Fulbright Specialists Grant!

Projects must be approved by USEFP; the process is often competitive. The goals of the program include developing linkages between U.S. and Pakistani academic institutions.

· The Fulbright Specialists grant pays for the scholar’s international travel and an honorarium. The host institution is asked to provide housing, meals, and any program-related in-country travel.
