Incorporate a Global Perspective with International Scholar and Student Speakers

Invite a Visit or Guest Lecture by an international scholar or student. A discussion of almost any topic offers the opportunity for internationalization by welcoming voices from other cultures and countries. Visiting scholars can add an international perspective on the subject of their expertise, and scholars and students can offer context and comparison of how topics and issues are viewed in their countries.

International Visiting Scholars at Montclair State

Every semester, Montclair State invites international visiting scholars to conduct research at the University, hosted by a Montclair State faculty member. These visiting scholars come from all over the world and often seek opportunities to engage with faculty and students at the university. Most would be delighted to receive an invitation to talk about their research and/or their home country with a class of US students.

Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund

The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) provides funding for campuses to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars, already in the United States, for short-term speaking engagements. To see a list of current Visiting Scholars in the U.S. please visit the Fulbright Scholar Directory. The OLF travel award is designed to enrich both institutions and Visiting Scholars through lectures that will promote academic disciplines and cultural understanding. Additionally, the OLF seeks to build relationships and partnerships with institutions that are currently underrepresented within the Fulbright Program as a means to promote future opportunities.
