Hamline Law Business Law Institute Director Ann Graham has been selected for the roster of Fulbright Specialists, a list of Fulbright-approved subject matter experts available for Fulbright-sponsored international projects.

“Fulbright is such a well-known and respected program,” Graham said. “This is a big honor for me and for Hamline.”

Graham is not yet certain which project she will work on, but she explained that there is flexibility for timing, country and project. She anticipates participating in a project next summer.

The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) promotes linkages between U.S. academics and professionals and their counterparts at host institutions overseas. The program is designed to award grants to qualified U.S. faculty and professionals, in select disciplines, to engage in short-term collaborative two-to-six-week projects at host institutions in over 100 countries worldwide. International travel costs and a stipend are funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating host institutions cover grantee in-country expenses or provide in-kind services.

Project activities focus on strengthening and supporting the development needs of host institutions abroad and do not fund personal or clinical medical research and related projects involving patient contact. Eligible activities include short-term lecturing, conducting seminars, teacher training, special conferences or workshops, as well as collaborating on curriculum planning, institutional and/or faculty development.

The goals of the Fulbright Specialist Program are: to increase the participation of leading U.S. scholars and professionals in Fulbright academic exchanges; to encourage new activities that go beyond the core Fulbright activities of lecturing and research; and to promote increased connections between U.S. and non-U.S. institutions.
