Fulbright US Scholar Program: Postdoctoral Opportunities Abroad
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is pleased to offer 19 exciting Postdoctoral Awards in 11 countries. Fulbright postdocs provide scholars who have recently graduated with a fully-funded opportunity to research and train under faculty abroad. Alumni of the program have cited the dedicated research time and extended mentorship of these opportunities as the top assets of Fulbright’s postdoctoral placements. Additionally, the professional network of fellow Fulbrighters and the prestige of the grant have opened doors for postdocs: after completing their grants, our scholars have gone on to succeed in tenure-track jobs, industry, and ongoing research and engagement in their field of study.
Countries offering Postdoctoral Awards in 2024-2025: Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Israel, Mexico, Slovak Republic, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, European Union (Italy)
