2009-2010 Fulbright Awards

Greek Scholarship Program – Artists and Art Scholars

The Fulbright Foundation in Greece was established in 1948 and takes pride on operating the oldest Fulbright Program in Europe and the second oldest continuously operating Program in the world.  It is a non profit, non-political, autonomous, bi-national institution which awards grants to both Greek and U.S. citizens.

Since 1948, the Fulbright Foundation has offered free advising services for studies in the U.S. to thousands of individuals and has awarded grants to more than 2,600 Greek and 1,700 U.S. citizens.  The grants are in the form of financial stipends, which allow students, teachers, artists and scholars to study, lecture or conduct research in the U.S. and Greece respectively.

The Fulbright Program, the premier international educational exchange program throughout the world, promotes mutual understanding and collaborations between U.S. and international educational institutions and individuals. The Program fosters cross-cultural personal interactions in an atmosphere of global awareness, academic freedom and intellectual integrity.  Grantees are selected on the basis of academic excellence, professional experience, personal character and ability and willingness to share ideas and experiences with people of diverse cultures.

The Fulbright Program has brought together some of the finest minds from around the globe.  More than 140 countries have participated in the Program since its inception in 1946 and more than 96,000 U.S. citizens and 158,000 participants from other countries have benefited from the Fulbright experience.  Many Fulbright scholars are young professionals who will return to positions of leadership in their home countries.  Fulbright alumni include Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, prime ministers and heads of state, professors and scientists, ambassadors and artists, Supreme Court Justices and CEOs.

Overview and Guidelines

The Fulbright Foundation in Greece will award four grants (the final number may change, based on funding) to mid-career artists and art-scholars to research, observe and train in their field in the United States. This award is open to artists and art scholars in any field of fine arts: the visual arts, music, theatre, dance, crafts, applied arts, design, multimedia, film, digital arts, and others. Grant period may begin as early as September 2009 and must be completed by May 2010. Fulbright grants are awarded for two-three month projects. Applications may be submitted only if applicants have received an official letter of invitation from an educational or cultural organization in the United States. This award is NOT for candidates seeking a degree. Candidates who wish to pursue a Master's degree, and meet all eligibility requirements, may apply under the Greek Graduate Students Program.

Eligibility requirements
•    Greek citizenship. Candidates with dual citizenship (US/Greek) or permanent residence in the United States are not eligible. Scholars will enter the United States on an Exchange Visitor (J-1) visa and are subject to the two-year home residency requirement associated with the J-1 visa.
•    Candidates should be over the age of 25 at the time of application.
•    A minimum of five years professional experience in their field of work/study. Preference will be given to mid career artists and art scholars.
•    An official letter of invitation from an educational or cultural organization in the United States which includes:  attendance dates, project description, responsibilities, and budget breakdown, if applicable.
•    English language fluency.

Grant benefits
•    Monthly maintenance allowance of U.S. $3,000. Fulbright grants are maximum for three months.  Recipients may continue their project under the Foundation’s auspices for more than three months only if funding from sources other than the Fulbright Foundation is obtained. Proof of funding and its source will be required.
•    Round trip travel allowance from Greece to the United States.
•    Limited health and accident insurance (for grantee only).
•    Introductory orientation program.
•    Pre-departure orientation program.
•    Awards ceremony.
•    J-l Exchange visitor visa.
•    Benefits offered by the cooperating agency in the United States, the Institute of International Education (IIE).
Conditions
•    A Fulbright Selection Committee will interview all candidates, in person on specific dates.  All candidates will be informed for their interview appointment with the Selection Committee with a letter, after submitting their application. Interviews are mandatory.
•    The Foundation's Board of Directors will review and re-evaluate the eligibility of the grant should the affiliated institution change.
•    The Foundation's advisers can provide candidates with information identifying possible affiliations. However, the contact and affiliation agreement is the responsibility of each applicant.
•    Candidates selected for a Fulbright grant are required to submit a medical history and examination report before their grants can be finalized.
•    Preference will be given to candidates with a degree from a recognized university or institution.
•    Priority will be given to applicants who have not had extensive recent experience in the United States.
•    Fulbright grant recipients will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements according to Foundation policies.
•    Awards cannot be deferred to the following year.

•    Fulbright grant recipients must travel on a J-l visa sponsored by the Fulbright Program. It is a condition of the visa that after completion of the academic program and the practical experience, students must return to Greece and reside there for two years before being eligible to immigrate or apply for permanent residence or a work permit in the United States. The purpose of the two-year home residency requirement is to ensure that exchange visitors return to their home country and fulfill the exchange objectives of the Fulbright Program.
