Fulbright Specialist Program

This page is for Australian institutions only. U.S. Specialists kindly refer to the Specialist Roster

The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) supports Australian educational institutions through grants to bring U.S. Specialists in selected disciplines to Australia for a period ranging between two and six weeks. The aim of the FSP grant is to assist Australian educational institutions to exchange expertise and build collaborative linkages with U.S. faculty and professionals on curriculum and faculty development, institutional planning and a variety of other activities. For example, the Specialist may:

  • Develop and/or assess academic curricula or educational materials;
  • Take part in specialised academic programs and conferences;
  • Conduct needs assessments, surveys, and institutional or programmatic research;
  • 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. In accordance with the Fulbright Program's aim of promoting mutual understanding between Australia and the U.S. the Specialist may also have the opportunity to participate in activities organised by the U.S. Embassy in Australia, the Australian-American Fulbright Commission and the Australian Fulbright Alumni Association.
