Fulbright Arctic Initiative

The Fulbright Arctic Initiative will bring together a network of scholars, professionals and applied researchers from the United States, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia and Sweden for a series of three seminar meetings and a Fulbright exchange experience.

At its core, the Fulbright Arctic Initiative will create a network to stimulate international scientific collaboration on Arctic issues while increasing mutual understanding between people of the United States and the people of other countries. Using a collaborative model to translate theory into practice, program participants will address public-policy research questions relevant to Arctic nations’ shared challenges.

Sixteen outstanding scholars from the U.S. and abroad will be selected to participate in the program as Fulbright Arctic Initiative Scholars through an open, merit-based competition. At least four of the scholars will be selected from the United States and at least one scholar will be selected from each of the other Arctic Council member states. Co-Lead Scholars Dr. Michael Sfraga and Dr. Ross A. Virginia will provide intellectual leadership throughout the Program, in addition to mentoring program participants and facilitating discussion and collaboration among the Arctic Initiative Scholars. Program activities will commence in spring 2015 and conclude in fall of 2016.
The Fulbright Arctic Initiative will provide a platform for scholars from across the Arctic region to engage in collaborative thinking, analysis, problem-solving and multi-disciplinary research in one of four areas: energy; water; health; infrastructure.

The Fulbright Arctic Initiative is a program of the US Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA).

Fulbright Israel Post-Doctoral Fellowships

Fulbright Israel Post-Doctoral Fellowships for
American Researchers in All Academic Disciplines
2015/2016 – 2016/2017

The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF), the Fulbright commission for Israel, plans to offer 8 fellowships to American post-doctoral researchers in support of work to be carried out at Israeli universities during the course of the 2015/2016-2016/2017 academic years.

The US Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program is open to candidates in all academic disciplines.

Holders of tenure track positions are not eligible to apply. Individuals who have already begun research activities in Israel prior to the application date are not eligible.

Program grants total $40,000, $20,000 per academic year.

Program Fellows must be accepted as post-doctoral researchers by Israeli host institutions, which agree to provide them with a standard post-doctoral grant, which they will receive in addition to their Fulbright Fellowship. Thus, the total financial support received by Program Fellows is likely to be in the range of at least $35,000-$40,000 per year.

Applications for 2015/2016-2016/2017 Fulbright Post-Doctoral Fellowships must be submitted to the Council for International Exchange of Scholars by August 1, 2014.

The full Program announcement is available at http://fulbright.org.il/uspostdoc.

Sandy Ng, Fulbright NEXUS Scholar

“This exchange has broadened my perspectives, allowed me to be immersed in other cultures, and provoked me to think of the implications of my work beyond my own country. While the possibilities are endless, it all started with NEXUS! In this globalized world, it is very important that the next generation of scholars be enlightened with a world perspective.”
