Title: Seeking U.S. Host Campuses for Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraqi American Literature Scholars
Through the support of the U.S. Department of State’s Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau, the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) is pleased to announce the opening of the application process to host a cohort of junior American Literature scholars from the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq.
The ten-week summer program for 2015 is designed to bring junior scholars to U.S. host institutions for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. Approximately four scholars will be placed in the cohort at each of the selected U.S. host institutions.
Participating institutions will enjoy a unique opportunity to establish lasting relationships with faculty members at universities in the scholars’ home countries and to build upon current efforts to internationalize their campuses and surrounding communities.
CIES will host a webinar to discuss the program and the application process. This webinar will be archived and can be accessed after the initial broadcasts. To register for one of the available sessions please click on the date of choice: Thursday, November 6 or Friday, November 7.
The application deadline Monday, December 1, 2014.
For more details regarding the program and instructions on how to submit a proposal, please visit the CIES website at http://www.cies.org/program/fulbright-faculty-development-programs.
