Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program

At-a-Glance

U.S. institutions of higher education may submit proposals to host Fulbright lecturers from abroad for one or both semesters in an academic year. Preference is given to institutions that are traditionally less involved in international exchange programs, including hosting visiting scholars and to colleges and universities serving minority audiences. Priority institutions include small liberal arts colleges, community colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and other Minority-serving Institutions. Colleges and universities sometimes propose to formally or informally share the visiting scholar with neighboring institutions or consortia, and consortia applications are welcome.

International Writing Program Fall Residency

At-a-Glance

The Fall Residency is a component of the International Writing Program (IWP) and is the oldest and largest multicultural writing residency in the world. The Fall Residency brings outstanding authors from every continent to the University of Iowa. The goal of the Fall Residency is to provide authors with the setting for cultural exchange and also with the time and space to write, read, translate, study, and to become part of the vibrant literary and academic community at the University of Iowa.

The Fall Residency is an unique experience for rising stars and established writers who have achieved literary distinction in their own countries, as well as demonstrated literary talent, broad appeal, and an interest in contributing to the creative writing culture in their home countries. Each fall, 25-35 writers gather in Iowa City for this 10-week residency to work on their own projects, to give readings and lectures, and to interact with American audiences and literary communities across the U.S. Writers share their literary cultures with others and establish contacts with the larger US publishing scene. 

In addition to the Fall Residency, IWP coordinates several massive open online courses (MOOCs) each year on topics related to creative writing and social issues which are free of charge and open to non-U.S. citizens and U.S. citizens. MOOCs provide participants the opportunity to learn from IWP Fall Residents and University of Iowa professors through video lectures, discussion-based instruction, and reading and writing assignments.
