The Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF), which has enabled this visit, allows Fulbright Visiting Scholars who are currently in the United States to travel to other higher education institutions across the country.

Each year some 800 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing.

The purpose of the OLF is to allow these scholars to share their specific research interests, speak on the history and culture of their home country, and exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty and community members.

The talks are free and open to all those interested in the topic or the country.
