Fulbright Scholar Program for Faculty and Professionals

The Fulbright Scholar Program for Faculty and Professionals is offering a variety of opportunities for both area and non-area specialists to lecture, conduct research, or carry out both activities in the Baltic States, Central and Eastern Europe, and Eurasia for academic year 2010-11. The traditional Fulbright Scholar Program offers awards that range from 2 to 10 months. Scholars may conduct research independently or in collaboration with host country colleagues. Applications are welcome from scholars in a broad range of disciplines in the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences. Opportunities also exist for professionals in such fields as law, public administration, conflict resolution, journalism, library science, and education. While many awards specify project and host institution, there are a number of open "All Discipline" awards that allow candidates to propose their own projects and determine their host institution affiliation. Foreign language skills may be required for certain research projects, but lecturing awards are in English. The application deadline for 2010-11 is August 1, 2009 .
