Fulbright for Latvian Host Institutions

Apply through the U.S. Embassy in Riga to be eligible to host a Fulbright Student or Scholar at your University:

Fulbright Students:

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects. A candidate will submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year.

Fulbright Scholars:

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program sends approximately 1,100 American scholars and professionals per year to approximately 125 countries, where they lecture and/or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields.

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
