Canada-U.S. Fulbright Visiting Research Chairs are normally awarded for one semester, though successful applicants may opt to extend their stay to a full year. Dates of the awards should coincide with the academic year of the host institution.
Provisions for Fulbright Visiting Chair awards are particular to each institution, though normally carry a value of US$25,000 for one semester. Basic health insurance is also provided, along with visa services and on campus support. Enrichment opportunities are available through the Fulbright Mobility Initiative in Canada and the Occasional Lecturers Program in the United States. Faculty sabbatical, leave-of-absence, or retirement pay may be used concurrently with Fulbright support.
All awards are subject to available funding, approval by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FSB), and compliance with FSB guidelines.
