What this program's fellows do

Inquiry Project
As part of the application process, educators identify a topic relevant to their own educational practice that can be enhanced by collaboration with colleagues in another country.

Orientation Workshop
Once selected, fellows gather in Washington, D.C., for a professional learning orientation workshop to work with other participants and further develop strategies for the inquiry design and implementation process.

International Field Experience
In the fall or spring semester, Fulbright Distinguished fellows travel to their host location for three to six months, where they pursue their inquiry projects with guidance from an advisor at a host institution. Fellows also take courses pertaining to their professional goals. A U.S.-based educational consultant supports fellows virtually throughout the program.

Online Professional Learning Community
Each Fulbright Distinguished fellow will participate in a virtual global community with other fellows to collaborate and share educational practices.

After successfully completing the Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Research Program, alumni may apply for grants and participate in global education networks to enhance and sustain the work they began during the program.

Join a global community of educators and prepare your students for the world.
