by Public Health Update


The U.S. Education Foundation in Nepal (USEF-Nepal or the Fulbright Commission) announces application open for 2022-2023 Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program. The Fulbright Visiting Scholars Program has provided thousands of scholars with the opportunity to develop collaborative research and/or artistic relationships with US scholars or artists; and to enhance scholarly publications and other contributions with research and/or artistic practice conducted in the US and to establish professional contacts in their field and make long-lasting friendships with colleagues in the US.

Depending on the availability of funding, the Nepal Fulbright Commission will provide a grant to one Nepali scholar or artist to conduct post-doctoral research at a US university or to undertake an artistic project at a US university, museum or cultural institution. The Fulbright-National Archives Heritage Science Fellow will work in the Heritage Science Research and Testing Laboratory of the National Archives and Record Administration, a state of the art facility focused on scientific research to assist in the conservation, preservation, and ongoing public accessibility of cultural and historic artifacts, records, and documents.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Citizenship or permanent resident status qualifying you to hold a valid passport issued in Nepal
  • Doctoral degree (for researchers) or equivalent professional training or experience at the time of application (for artists)- For professionals and artists outside academe, recognized professional standing and substantial professional accomplishment is expected. For post-doctoral researchers, only those scholars who received their doctorate between 2010-2018 are eligible to apply. A minimum of three years’ post-doctoral professional experience in Nepal for post-doctoral researchers; a minimum of five years of experience in the area is required for artists.
  • A detailed statement of proposed activity for research and/or an artistic project at a US institution- The proposed project should contribute to the development of knowledge in your field and must be feasible within a maximum period of nine months in the US.

Fulbright Scholars enter the US on an Exchange Visitor (J-1) visa under a U.S. Department of State program and are subject to the two-year home-country residency requirement associated with the J-1 visa. Scholars/Artists are expected to reside in Nepal for two years after completion of their Fulbright grant period in the US before they may apply for non-immigrant visas (H and L) as temporary workers, for permanent residence in the US, or as immigrants. Scholars/Artists and their dependents who have held J visas with sponsorship of more than six months are not eligible to re-enter as J-1 researchers or artists for 12 months following the program sponsorship end date.
