The Fulbright US Scholars Core Program in the French Studies allows grantees to conduct research in the humanities, social sciences, and political science (preferred topics : anthropology, archaeology, architecture, area studies, art, art history, education, film studies, geography, history, journalism, language and literature, linguistics, music, philosphy, political science, and social work). Grantees collaborate with colleagues from French research centers and institutes of higher education. We encourage grantees to participate in local conferences and workshops, to conduct seminars, and to share their research with colleagues at the host institution.

We expect applicants to arrange an affiliation and to solicit an invitation from a prospective host institution.
