Fulbright to India Guide – 2021-2022



Fulbright Facilitator

Each Fulbright student and scholar is assigned an academic coordinator at their place of affiliation.  The academic coordinator agrees to assist with a student’s or scholar’s project, but he or she may not be able to devote extended time to orienting the Fulbright-Nehru and Fulbright-Kalam grantee.  Therefore, USIEF offers Fulbright-Nehru grantees extra help provided by a local contact upon arrival in their city of affiliation in India.

This ‘facilitator’ will often be a junior faculty member or a graduate student who has agreed to spend up to three to five days to help the grantee get familiar with the place of his/her stay in India, and to equip the grantee with skills to handle various day-to-day situations in his/her place of stay. 

Areas to be covered during the facilitation process can include foreign registration (FRRO), telephone connection, introduction to local transportation, emergency services and hospitals, shopping facilities, public services, and places of interest.  The facilitation service is optional.  USIEF pays the facilitator according to set norms.
