The selected participant will receive:
- J-1 visa sponsorship
- J-1 visa compliant health benefits
- Round trip international travel to the United States.
The Fulbrighter will also receive a modest stipend to cover living expenses, settling in, and professional development allowances. If applicable, the grantee will receive also a modest dependent allowance. J visa compliant health insurance and travel costs for accompanying dependents are the responsibility of the participant.
The monthly stipend will be $3700 monthly (that’s the rate for the metro DC area), plus any relevant dependent allowances ($200 monthly for one dependent, $350 for two or more dependents). There are also modest settling in and professional development allowances of roughly $2K combined, although less if the grant is 4 months or less.
Additionally, recipients of this award will be invited to participate Fulbright Scholar Enrichment Activities as well as Fulbright’s Outreach Lecturing Fund.
Fellows will join a diverse, active, worldwide network of alumni who carry the impact of their transformational Fulbright experience far beyond the period of their exchange programs.
