Fulbright Scholar Award (funded by the University of Technology Sydney)

The development of research areas is important to the bi-lateral relationship between the United States and Australia. It is hoped that this award will provide scholars with an opportunity to contribute to this relationship, and to key research areas at UTS.

Other activities may include consulting on curriculum, participating in graduate/faculty seminars, and giving guest lectures. All applicants should demonstrate plans for some interaction with UTS faculty and students. Scholars should not teach intensive seminars or coursework but should demonstrate plans for some interaction with UTS.
