The Fulbright Inter-Country Travel Grant
The Icelandic Fulbright Commission participates in the Fulbright Inter-Country Travel Grant Program. The program provides:
- U.S. scholars on Fulbright grants in Europe with opportunities to enrich their professional and cultural experience outside of their country of assignment.
- Icelandic institutions with an opportunity to invite Fulbright grantees from other countries in Europe to lecture in Iceland.
The inter-country scholar visit must take place during the U.S. scholar’s Fulbright grant period. Visits are expected to take 3-5 days.
The Fulbright travel grant will cover the visiting lecturer’s airfare from the host country using the most economical fare. The host institution is expected to cover accommodation, meals and in-country travel costs.
Fulbright scholars in Iceland who wish to take part in this program must have a host in another participating European country. The host applies to the Fulbright Commission in that country.
The host institution identifies a suitable scholar from the list of U.S. Fulbright scholars in Europe for the current academic year. If the host has not had previous contact with an interesting scholar, the Fulbright Commission may initiate contact on the host’s behalf.
The application form is available here. It should be filled out and sent to [email protected].
