The U.S. Embassy in Lithuania is pleased to announce that the Fulbright Specialist Program now is open for submission of project requests.
Fulbright Specialist Program pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and U.S. professionals with an opportunity to share their expertise by carrying out projects requested by host institutions in Lithuania.
The program offers from 2 to 6 week-length project opportunities year-round to reputable academic institutions; government institutions; cultural institutions; non-governmental organizations; and public health-related institutions.
Specialists are frequently academics; however, professionals and experts in eligible fields (such as business, law, journalism, economics, communications, security, public health, and public administration) often take part in the program as well. Specialists exchange knowledge, build capacity, and establish partnerships benefiting participants, institutions, and communities both in the United States and overseas.
U.S. Fulbright Specialists partner with their host institutions to conduct project activities in support of the host institution’s priorities and goals. Through the Fulbright Specialist Program, U.S. academics and professionals apply their knowledge and expertise to a diverse array of activities including, but not limited to:
- Delivering seminars, trainings or workshops
- Consulting on faculty or workforce development
- Developing academic or training curricula and materials
- Lecturing at the graduate or undergraduate level
- Engaging in strategic or institutional planning
- Conducting needs assessments or evaluations for a program or institution
The host institutions are financially responsible for the specialist’s lodging, meals, and in-country transportation. Fulbright Specialist projects must be carried out in-person.
