March 26, 2013

Fulbright-Nehru Fellowship opportunities are available for U.S. citizens in India for the 2014-15 academic year. 
India has the largest U.S. Fulbright Scholar Program in the world. USIEF awards more than 80 Fulbright-Nehru grants each year to U.S. citizens.
  • USIEF has introduced Postdoctoral Fellowships for candidates who have earned a doctorate degree in the last five years.
  • Grants for teaching, teaching/research, and research have been combined under Fulbright-Nehru Academic and Professional Excellence award category, which is open to faculty and professionals in all disciplines.
  • “Serial grants” will allow faculty the opportunity to conduct research in India, during shorter in-country stays, over the course of two years.
  • The Distinguished Chair award, designed for eminent scholars with substantial teaching experience, offers the opportunity to travel to prominent institutions in India to deliver guest lectures and participate in conferences and workshops
  • USIEF provides a dependent education allowance up to $10,000.

For more information on these grant options and benefits, visit the CIES website. The application deadline is August 1, 2013.

For details regarding benefits and application procedures for student grants, visit the Fulbright U.S. Student Program page.

Recently, many U.S. institutions have sent delegations to India on fact finding missions to engage strategically with their counterparts in India. A Fulbright-Nehru grant is an excellent way to seed potential long-standing partnerships with Indian institutions. In fact, each year there are grantees whose research collaborations and other joint efforts lead to active engagement at an institutional level.
