Greetings from Spain! I am here as a Fulbright scholar at the University of Granada Law School through June. Do you have a sabbatical coming up? Would you like to spend it abroad? The U.S. Fulbright Scholar Program sends about 1,000 faculty and professionals from the US to over 150 countries each year. Applications are due each year in early August; you find out if you are a finalist by November or so; and you find out if you will receive a grant by February or March. The grant can then be used the following school year. In other words, you have to apply about a year ahead. The availability and terms of grants vary country-by-country, and in the application process you choose the country you want to apply to. Complete information is here. Especially check out the Catalog of Awards that gives specific information about the available grants.
