The Fulbright Core Scholar Program
The Fulbright Core Scholar Program grants are available to U.S. faculty and professionals to lecture and/or conduct research at Icelandic universities. Basic information is provided here, but scholars are encouraged to visit the Fulbright Catalog of Awards for a full listing of grants available through the Fulbright Commission in Iceland. The catalog provides detailed information on each grant.
For teaching grants, with or without a research component, the grant period is three to five months, usually corresponding to the fall or spring semester. The grant period for grants that are primarily research-based, such as Fulbright-NSF research grants, is anywhere from three to twelve months. Grant benefits include a travel stipend and baggage allowance, a stipend that covers living costs in Iceland, access to enrichment activities in Iceland and supplemental accident and sickness coverage for the grantee. U.S. scholars apply through the to CIES, the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, with a fall application deadline for the subsequent academic year.
