Fulbright CORE Scholar Awards can be for teaching only, for research only, or for both teaching and research.  Some are for Distinguished Chairs, while others are for Early Career Scholars.  There are more than 800 possible awards to 120 countries; approximately 1200 grants per year.  It also is possible to do a FLEX  grant, which is for 2 to 3 months across 2 to 3 years. Come to hear strategies for making your application successful from a panel of former Fulbright CORE Scholars who have served on the Interdisciplinary Review Panel in Washington DC .  Panel members include:
