The Fulbright Program supports roughly 60-70 U.S. Researchers in China each year, including U.S. Student Program grantees (who apply through and whose grants are managed by IIE). Selected candidates carry out independent research projects in close collaboration with a Chinese academic host institution, which approves the project and sponsors the visa.
IIE Beijing provides nominated U.S. Researchers with support for placement at a Chinese host institution and assistance in securing visa paperwork. Additional assistance with placement is provided by the China Scholarship Council for those candidates applying to institutions that participate in the Chinese Government Scholarship program, through which nominated Fulbright researchers are eligible to receive tuition waivers. IIE Beijing also serves as the first point of contact for all U.S. Researchers as they prepare to depart to China and following their arrival, providing detailed guidance about research conditions and practical life issues.
