The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), under a cooperative agreement with the United States Department of State, administers the Fulbright Scholar Program for faculty and professionals. Each year, the core Fulbright Scholar Program sends some 800 U.S. faculty and professionals to 140 countries to lecture, research, or participate in seminars. At the same time, approximately 800 foreign faculty come to the U.S. each year. The Scholar Program offers grants for journalists and other communicators. Visit the Fulbright Program page for details. The shorter Specialist Program offers grants of two to six weeks. The New Century Scholars Program brings 30 of some of the world’s top academics and professionals together to collaborate on an issue of global importance.
