The Fulbright Inter-Country Travel Grant

The Icelandic Fulbright Commission participates in the Fulbright Inter-Country Travel Grant Program. The program provides:

  • US scholars on Fulbright grants in Europe with opportunities to enrich their professional and cultural experience outside of their country of assignment.
  • Icelandic institutions with an opportunity to invite Fulbright grantees from other countries in Europe to lecture in Iceland.

US Fulbright scholars located in Iceland are welcome to participate in the program as well.


The Fulbright travel grant will cover the visiting lecturer's airfare from the host country using the most economical fare. The Icelandic institution is expected to cover other resulting expenses (accommodation, etc.).

The inter-country scholar visit must take place during the US scholar's Fulbright grant period.

If selected, the grantee will be responsible for making his/her own travel arrangements.

Application Procedure

The host institution identifies a suitable scholar from the list of US Fulbright scholars in Europe for the current academic year. If the host has not had previous contact with an interesting scholar, the Fulbright Commission may initiate contact on host's behalf.
