U.S. institutions of higher education may submit proposals to host Fulbright lecturers from abroad for one or both semesters in an academic year. Preference is given to institutions that are traditionally less involved in international exchange programs, including hosting visiting scholars and to colleges and universities serving minority audiences. Priority institutions include small liberal arts colleges, community colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and other Minority-serving Institutions. Colleges and universities sometimes propose to formally or informally share the visiting scholar with neighboring institutions or consortia, and consortia applications are welcome.
