Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program
The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Libya is designed to bring Libyan scholars to U.S. institutions for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. Scholars spend 10 weeks at selected U.S. host institutions, where they will be introduced to new teaching and research methods, observe classes, attend seminars, and develop linkages with American faculty through weekly mentoring sessions. On-going community engagement with university-identified host families, volunteers, or others in the broader local community will facilitate the scholars' participation in outreach activities, including visits to historical sites and attendance at cultural events. While introduction to new research methods in the scholars' disciplines does constitute one component of the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Libya, the program is not intended to provide a venue for individual research projects.
- Build higher education capacity in Libya through faculty development and mentoring for junior scholars
- Foster long-term collaboration and institutional linkages between Libyan scholars and U.S. academics
- Promote mutual understanding between Libyans and Americans by facilitating the scholars' engagement with the broader host campus community
