Fulbright logoUAB welcomes visiting faculty and researchers from around the world sponsored by the Institute for International Education (IIE) through the Fulbright Program every year.

For Host Departments

If you are a UAB faculty member who wishes to host a Fulbright scholar in your department, please first contact Penny Whiteside, Director of Sponsored International Programs in the Office of the VP of Research and Economic Development, at whiteside@uab.edu.

Once the Institution Response Form has been completed and signed by the appropriate parties at UAB, the visiting scholar can begin the process of applying for the J-1 visa necessary to enter the US when sponsored by IIE/Fulbright.

For Visiting Fulbright Scholars

We realize that you will attend a Fulbright-specific orientation in New York before arriving at UAB, but we would like to extend you a warm Southern welcome as well! The Office of International Student and Scholar Services will be in touch to arrange a brief introduction to campus resources and life at UAB, held in the International Center on the second floor of Sterne Library.
