The Fulbright Specialist Program offers grants for a period of 2 - 6 weeks to collaborate with Finnish institutions on projects such as teaching and lecturing, curriculum and faculty development, institutional planning and a variety of other activities.

Applications for longer (5-6 weeks) visits are preferred, and shared applications by two or more Finnish institutions are encouraged.

For example, a Specialist may:

  • Conduct needs assessments, surveys, institutional or programmatic research
  • Take part in specialized academic programs and conferences in conjunction with other scheduled activities
  • Consult with administrators and instructors of post-secondary institutions on faculty development
  • Present lectures at graduate and undergraduate levels
  • Participate in or lead seminars or workshops at academic institutions
  • Develop and/or assess academic curricula or educational materials
  • Conduct teacher-training programs at the tertiary level
