The Fulbright South African Research Scholar Program (SARSP) is an opportunity for South African university faculty or research institute professionals to conduct research in their field of expertise at a U.S. academic or research Institution for a period of 3 to 9 months starting no earlier than August 2021 and no later than March 2022. A research grant enables the scholar to perform high-level research at a U.S. educational institution, aimed at strengthening academic programs or curricula at his/her home institution. Applicants need to have a proven track record of productive scholarly research, and publications.
Fulbright-Emory Distinguished Chair Scholar Award
In addition to the standard SARSP award, we are pleased to announce a separate Fulbright SARSP award for 2021-2022. The Fulbright-Emory Distinguished Chair Scholar Award will fund one visiting scholar from South Africa for a duration of 4 months at Emory University. The Awardee must teach, give lectures, participate in the academic life of the university and conduct research at Emory. Priority will be given to the selection of scholars whose activities are related to graduate programs in South Africa with the objective of increasing the impact of their scholarship back in South Africa as a result of their experience in the United States.
