The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. It is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The Fulbright Program provides participants-chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential – with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. Grants are available for U.S. citizens to go abroad and for non-U.S. citizens with no U.S. permanent residence to come to the U.S. The Fulbright Program is an important element of the United States’ bilateral relationships with countries around the world. U.S. and foreign governments jointly set priorities for the exchanges.
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program sends American scholars and professionals abroad to lecture and/or conduct research for up to a year.
My Applications & Grants
I recently completed a nine-month teaching grant (2016-2017 academic year) to Romania. During the fall term, I was assigned to Bucharest, where I taught Pedagogy at The National University of Theatre and Cinematographic Arts (UNATC) and American Studies at the University of Bucharest. During the spring term, I taught Dramatic Literature and directed the musical The Fantasticks at Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj.
I received and completed a six-month grant as a Fulbright Scholar to teach Dramatic Theory and Criticism (Aesthetics) at the University of Prishtina in Kosovo during the 2012 spring term. I also directed the university’s graduating actors in their diploma production at the National Theatre.
In 2007, I applied for a Fulbright to teach in Iceland. I passed the peer review but was not selected as the final candidate.
