Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program

Join the ranks of eminent legal scholars and practitioners in the Fulbright program, the most widely recognized and prestigious international exchange program in the world—supported for more than half a century by the American people through an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress and by the people of partner nations.

In addition, diverse award types are available for postdoctoral researchers, distinguished professors and professional applicants. A Ph.D. or JD is required for most awards.
