Summary: Up to seven All Discipline grants in any area of the humanities, arts, social sciences or pure and applied sciences (STEM) to collaborate with colleagues at Greek universities, museums and other cultural organizations and research centers. One Spain-Greece Joint Teaching/Research Award and one Iceland-Greece Joint Award on Economic Crisis Management are also offered. The final number may change according to demand and funding.
Program Overview: The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is an important component of the Fulbright Foundation's mission to bring outstanding U.S. scholars from a wide variety of disciplines to Greek institutions of higher learning and state or private organizations in order to promote cultural and educational ties between the two countries through scholarly interaction and collaboration.
Grants are for individuals with a Ph.D. or a terminal degree and three to 10 years or more of appropriate professional experience. Grants are intended for three months for the fall term (October – December) and three to four months for the spring term (February – June) of the academic year.
Applicants are encouraged to arrange affiliation(s) in Greece and submit letters of invitation indicating name/position of host and details on collaborating organization/institution. Information about Greek universities and awards can be found at the Fulbright Foundation in Greece here. English is sufficient for teaching/lecturing; however, knowledge of Greek is useful.
