The aim of the program is to enhance research efforts in a wide range of disciplines, strengthen lecture quality and diversity and increase academic exchange opportunities between Chilean and U.S. universities. Academic semesters are from March to July and August to December. Awards are rarely made during the January-February period unless justified by the nature of the project and prearranged with the Fulbright Commission.
Scholars are expected to deliver lectures, seminars or workshops to students and professors and assist in curriculum development in any area. Collaborative research and publication with Chilean colleagues are also encouraged. Applicants should propose a work ratio between teaching and research. Final arrangements will be negotiated by the scholar and the host institution.
Eligibility: Open to all academics and appropriately qualified professionals outside of academia except early-career scholars.
Key dates: Applications are typically due in August or September
Duration: Grant length is flexible within a range of three to four months.
