This year, as part of the Fulbright Visiting Grants Program – Cohort 2022, the U.S. Department of State is offering a new category called: The Fulbright-National Archives Heritage Science Awards. It is important to note that the evaluation and selection process for this category is carried out by The Institute of International Education (IIE), in the United States.

This award provides the opportunity for visiting researchers to collaborate and connect with scientists and experts from the National Archives while conducting research at the National Archives’ State-of-the-art Heritage Science Research and Testing Lab, located in College Park, Maryland. This award is made possible through a partnership between the Department of State and the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration. This program modality was established to support education, preservation and research in archival science. The length of stay must be between 5 and 12 months, starting in September 2022.
