I (Malcolm T. Sanford) have been selected to be listed on the Fulbright Specialist roster . This is a completely different program in many ways from the one that awards grants to students and academics, one of which I received in Ecuador in 2000 while on the faculty at the University of Florida.
It’s up to folks in countries requesting a specialist (entomology/beekeeping/apiculture) to come up with a suitable program/project and then request a specialist from the roster, usually by contacting their local U.S. Embassy. The projects are short term (up to six weeks) and the in-country costs of the specialist are paid by the host. For further information, contact Katrin DeWindt, Assistant Director, U.S. Scholars Programs, at (202) 686-6254.
