The Fulbright Specialist Program lasts anywhere from two to six weeks and is for American professors and researchers to contribute to a specialized seminar in a Peruvian institution. The Specialist helps in the design of the lesson plan, prepares teaching materials, and offers training for professors or members from the Peruvian organization. Initiative should come from the Peruvian organization interested in hosting the Specialist, which should present an application to the Fulbright Commission in Lima stating either the specific professor or researcher they would like to invite, or the type of person they need. Professors are also selected by WorldLearning.
The Senior Specialist Program is a partial scholarship. The Peruvian institution covers the cost of all transport within the country, housing, and essential costs for the professor. WorldLearning provides a daily allowance for the professor and pays for international transport and medical insurance.
