More about this internship

The Fulbright Foundation in Greece will award 2 partial grants (depending on available funding) to Greek doctoral students to conduct fulltime research at universities or research centers in the United States (Fulbright Visiting Student Researcher). Fulbright grants are awarded for periods of four (one semester) or of six months. The grant period may begin as early as September 15, 2016 and must be completed by May 31, 2017. The grant period cannot be divided and may be conducted at a maximum of two universities or research centers. Applications may be submitted only if applicants have received an official letter of invitation or admission from an educational institution in the United States. This program supports projects and activities that recognize and promote the critical relationship between educational exchange and international understanding, in addition to the intellectual merit of the proposals. Applications with broad multiplier effects are welcome, as are projects that are conducive to candidates’ sharing of their experiences and knowledge with colleagues and students in the host country (US) and upon return, in Greece. This award is not for candidates seeking a degree.
