Fulbright Annual Report 2015/16 available
Fulbright Austria’s Annual Report for the 2015-16 program provides an overview of the statutory framework, partners, revenues, and expenditures for all programs Fulbright Austria manages as well as a comprehensive list of program participants, including their home and host institutions.
Fulbright Austria had the eighth largest U.S. Fulbright Scholar Program in the world during the 2015-16 program year. The fact that it ranked eight -- behind India (36), Germany (35), United Kingdom (30), France (29), Brazil (25), Israel (24) and Canada (23) -- is a real testimony to the enthusiastic institutional support Austrian host institutions provide for the program.
I also want to draw your attention to a Fulbright Austria 2016 timeline that provides a nice overview of the past year and want to encourage you to consult it on the website. It highlights Fulbright Austria’s manifold activities and complements the facts and figures of the Annual Report so well.
In closing, I want to solicit your support by taking this opportunity to draw your attention to the fact that the 25 Fulbright awards for U.S. scholars to Austria for 2018-19 are now on-line on our website and have been posted by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES).
Please distribute information on these opportunities among your colleagues and coworkers as liberally as possible and invite them to encourage qualified candidates to apply. Experience has shown that the faculty and staff of host institutions in Austria are instrumental in attracting candidates for awards, and it is this kind of initiative that greatly enhances the outreach efforts of CIES. The deadline for applications for the U.S. Scholar Program for the academic year 2018-19 is August 1, 2017.
