2024 Fulbright Specialist Program

The United States-Kosovo Educational Exchange Board (USKEB) invites Kosovan host institutions to submit project proposals for Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP), which allows the host to bring qualified U.S. scholars and professionals to Kosovo for two to six weeks to compete a defined project.

Fulbright Specialists exchange knowledge, build capacity, and establish partnerships benefiting participants, institutions, and communities both in the United States and in Kosovo. The FSP promotes long-term collaboration between U.S. and Kosovan institutions through projects that align with U.S. Department of State goals and the priorities of host institutions. This Fulbright opportunity offers an on-demand, short-term exchange resource open to a wide variety of fields that responds directly to the needs of host institutions and host countries.
