The Fulbright programme offers a “Travel Pot” fund which enables American Fulbright scholars based in New Zealand to visit other countries in the East Asia and Pacific region for further educational and cultural exchange activities.
The Travel Pot is intended to support scholars to visit another country in the East Asia and Pacific region for the following types of activities:
- Presenting keynote address at a conference;
- Participating in panels;
- Giving graduate-level or faculty lectures and/or seminars;
- Giving public lectures;
- Giving master classes; or
- Presenting recitals, exhibitions or workshops.
To be eligible, you must be the recipient of a current Fulbright US Scholar Award.
- Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis;
- As a general rule, programmes should last at least three days but not more than two weeks;
- Travel pot funds are to be used primarily to cover “between country” travel. You will be funded for a round-trip airfare by the most economical route from your New Zealand base to the travel destination; or
- While you may wish to use some of your free time for research or other independent academic work, such activities should not be the primary purpose of your travel nor should it represent more than a small portion of your time spent in the other country.
To apply for an award, the scholar must in the first instance submit a Travel Pot application to our Programme Manager for Fulbright US Scholar Awards.
