How does Fulbright define "mid-career"? Are there specific criteria?

I am sorry you may have said that already but how do we manage our teaching responsibility at our home campus and how does compensation work? Should we first check with our college before applying?

For UHCL, initial questions may be directed to EducationAbroad@uhcl.edu.

Does Fulbright still have 2 week or 1 month awards? I can't remember the special name they gave them.
Mike McMullen
01:03:23
No, these were short term Fulbrights for "experts" if I remember correctly.
Mike McMullen
01:03:33
Yes!

corissawandmacher
01:07:37
Yes, that is correct
Dina Abdelzaher
01:08:11
so the letter of invitation should be issued by the place you are targeting it?
Dina Abdelzaher
01:08:51
thank you
Ferenc Bunta
01:10:20
Yes
Dina Abdelzaher
01:18:36

Thank you for an informative presentation. Be well, all!

Thank you.
Monique Mills

It can overlap with linguistics and, for me, education.
Monique Mills
01:31:20
It could be STEM as well
Monique Mills
01:31:27
Very interdisciplinary
Monique Mills
01:31:55
Is there a list of reviewers?
Ann Cheek
01:32:11
Thank you!
Monique Mills
01:32:34
Yes, that makes sense. Also, knowing who is on review panels would be helpful in framing the proposal.
Monique Mills
01:33:30
