Fulbright Scholar Program Innovations Spotlight: Flex Grants
In order to engage U.S. scholars currently unable to spend extended periods of time abroad, the Fulbright Program welcomes applications from scholars who propose multiple stays of one to three months in the host country over a period of two to three years.  The total proposed visits should equal approximately one semester of exchanges.  In addition to their primary research or teaching activities, flex award scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host-country academic community. Some programs may offer opportunities for multi-country research, but these should be discussed with the appropriate CIES staff.For more information about Flex Grants within the Fulbright Scholar Program, and to view a list of countries offering these types of awards, please visit
