The SIR program is especially appropriate for small liberal arts colleges, minority-serving institutions and community colleges in the U.S.
How to Apply:
This is a program for which U.S. institutions of higher education apply. They can either name a scholar or request recruitment of one through the Fulbright agencies worldwide. Therefore, Indian scholars should draw the SIR program to the attention of their U.S. counterparts. Further information is available on the CIES website www.cies.org/sir.
