Also note that 900+ Visiting Fulbright Scholars are hosted annually by higher education institutions around the United States. The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) is a travel grant that facilitates short term (two to six days) campus visits to additional U.S. academic institutions. OLF recipients share their research interests, speak on the history and culture of their home countries, and exchange ideas with other scholars, students and members of the wider community.  To view a list of Visiting Scholars currently in the U.S. for 2014-15, please visit the scholar directory.  For more information and to apply, please contact the Outreach Lecturing Fund at
