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. The final number may change according to demand and funding.

Program Overview The Fulbright 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.

Individuals who seek affiliations with Greek State Universities and/or research organizations will typically need to hold a Ph.D. or a terminal degree and have three to 10 years or more of appropriate professional experience.  Individual research or art projects do not carry this requirement.  However, substantial experience in the field of expertise is required.  Grants are intended for either three months during the fall term (October ā€“ December) or three to four months during the spring term (February ā€“ June).

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.  English is sufficient for teaching/lecturing; however, knowledge of Greek is useful. Information on Greek universities can be found at the Fulbright Foundation in Greece website
