Fulbright Guest Lecture Program

 

The Educational Exchanges staff of the United States Embassy is pleased to offer the 2011-2012 Fulbright Guest Lecture Program to Chinese universities.

The U.S. Fulbright Lecturer Program focuses on the development of American studies in Chinese universities. Lecturers with expertise in American Literature, Law, American History, Public Health, Political Science, Education, and Economics teach in selected host university departments for one or two academic terms.


In order to make the resources represented by the U.S. Lecturers available to the wider academic community in China, the Fulbright Guest Lecture Program, initiated in 1983, financially supports Lecturers’ travel away from their host universities to make presentations to various academic audiences throughout China.


Universities wishing to arrange for Guest Lectures on their campuses should send a written invitation (via mail, fax or e-mail) directly to the U.S. Lecturer. Your university should provide free, adequate housing and, if requested, assist in booking return tickets to the Lecturer’s host institution. The Fulbright Program will pay for travel expenses to and from the Guest Lecture host institution once at least two lectures have been arranged.


In consultation with interested faculty members, and after choosing among the Lecture Topics and arranging for two lectures on or in the vicinity of your campus, please be sure to announce the event among the appropriate departments or the university at-large. We also recommend that you take this opportunity to introduce your guest to the local culture and cuisine, as well as relevant university faculty.

Please contact Mr. Ma Zhigang (maz@state.gov) or Mr. Nathan Keltner (keltnerna@state.gov) with any questions or suggestions.
