Fulbright Specialist Program for Nepali Institutions

KMC Lalitpur

The Fulbright Specialist Program offers opportunities for established U.S. professionals and academics to share expertise, gain international experience, and develop collaborative partnerships through short-term, project-based exchanges at institutions around the globe.

The program is a field-driven initiative in which Nepali host institutions conceptualize and design projects of interest within an eligible discipline that represent a priority for their respective organizations. These projects are then matched with a highly qualified U.S. academic or professional, who shares their expertise and assists with strengthening linkages between U.S. and foreign host institutions.
