Fulbright Specialist Program provides an opportunity to Indian universities and institutions of higher learning to collaborate with the US faculty and professionals. In addition to sharing their expertise, Specialists can help develop linkages between host institutions and US institutions. Host institutions must be degree-granting, post-secondary academic institutions, comparable to US colleges or universities in order to promote an important program goal of fostering linkages between US and Indian academic institutions of higher education. Additionally, institutions that provide an educational focus to their programming will also be considered. Such hosts may include government-related institutions, cultural institutions, medical institutions and research organizations/think tanks.
