The Fulbright Durham University Award covers a 3-12 month project for researching, lecturing or teaching in any research-active department at the university.

Durham University is distinctive - a residential collegiate university with long traditions and modern values. 

After the Dark Ages in Europe, the 7th century saw a flowering of thought and culture in the North East of England. Bede - poet, scientist, historian and the greatest European scholar of the 7th century - is buried in Durham, as is St Cuthbert, who established 'English' Christianity from its Celtic and Roman roots.

Durham University is the inheritor of a continuous line of learning and scholarship dating from Bede and Cuthbert to the present day.
