Fulbright U.S. Scholar Awards for Research in France

The Fulbright Scholar Program of the United States Department of State is hosting a Fulbright U.S. Scholar: Spotlight on France Webinar on its research awards for U.S. scholars to travel to France to conduct research in various fields.

The Fulbright Research Scholar Awards provide vital support for scholars from the United States to pursue international research in nations around the world.

I have served as a Fulbright Research Scholar in France and in Belgium, allowing me to pursue archival research on religious violence, gender, and political culture in the French Wars of Religion and the Dutch Revolt.

I would encourage French historians and humanities scholars who are U.S. citizens and based at universities in the United States to consider applying for a Fulbright Research Scholar Award to conduct research in French archives and special collections.

The Fulbright Scholar Program has separate programs for U.S. scholars, international scholars, and other educators.

The Fulbright Student Program has various awards for graduate students and undergraduate students. Students at Northern Illinois University should contact their professors for advice on applying for a Fulbright Award.

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar: Spotlight on France Webinar will be held on 16 June 2021 from 2:00-3:00 (Eastern).

Here (below) is the Fulbright Scholar Program’s announcement:
