FULBRIGHT SENIOR SCHOLAR/ARTIST PROGRAM FOR NEPALI CITIZENS
The Nepal Fulbright Commission (USEF/Nepal) announces the competition for the Nepali Fulbright Senior Scholar/Artist grants for academic year 2013-14. Previously known as the Fulbright Post-Doctoral Research Program, this award will be extended to artists from the academic year 2013-14. Depending on the availability of funding, USEF/Nepal will provide grants to up to four Nepali scholars to conduct post-doctoral research at a U.S. university and/or Nepali artists to undertake an artistic project during the 2013-14 academic year for a period of six months.
The awards aim to provide an opportunity to collaborate with U.S. counterparts, forge links between local and U.S. academics and artists, build lasting ties between the two countries through their collaborations and share the experience and learning gained in the U.S. with local counterparts.
For post-doctoral research projects, the subject of the proposed research should relate directly to Nepal. Typewritten research proposals using the prescribed form will be accepted in any field. Applicants should have already established contact with and solicited expression of interest from the U.S. university where their research is to be conducted. Women and scholars residing/teaching outside the Kathmandu Valley are strongly encouraged to apply.
For artistic projects, the project should be based at a U.S. university, museum or other cultural institution. Typewritten project proposals using the prescribed form will be accepted from artists in music, theatre, writing, painting, design, or photography.
