Fulbright Scholar Program 2018 (Post-Doc Opportunity)

Dear faculty members,

The United States Education Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP) has announced Fulbright Scholar Program 2018. This program funds up to 12 months of lectureship, post-doctoral research, or a combination of the two at a U.S. college or university. The grant funds airfare, an incidental research allowance, a living stipend and health insurance. The program also funds one accompanying dependent.

As part of our endeavours to encourage continuous development and exposure for learning, faculty members who hold PhD or terminal degree in their respective fields are encouraged to apply.

Please note that if you have already identified any university or research institution, which is preferable, then you can mention the name and other details of that in the application. However, if you haven't been able to find an institution matching your interests, then you can submit the application without any institution names and the Fulbright commission will apply on your behalf.

In addition, please note that you are NOT required to take TOEFL test for this program/grant.

Please see the attached ad for reference. Key details of FSP 2018 are listed below for your ready reference.
