Subject: New Islamic Program at Fulbright
The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States
Department of State announces the opening of the second round of
competition for the Fulbright Visiting Specialists Program: Direct
Access to the Muslim World, administered by the Council for
International Exchange of Scholars (CIES). This program will enable
American colleges and universities to enrich their programs and courses
on issues related to the Muslim world by providing opportunities to
invite a Visiting Specialist from the Middle East, North Africa, South
Asia or from selected countries in Central Asia, East and West Africa
and Southeast Asia.
The Fulbright Visiting Specialists Program: Direct Access to the Muslim
World will support 20 to 25 grants for visits of between two and six
weeks by scholars and professionals from abroad. The Visiting
Specialists may present lectures or short courses, team-teach with
American colleagues, or assist in program and curriculum development in
colleges and universities. They will also participate in public outreach
programs, by speaking to community groups, service clubs, and religious
and school groups. Proposals will be accepted from liberal arts and
minority-serving institutions, including community colleges, with
limited or no current programs on the Muslim world. Proposals will also
be considered from larger institutions with established area studies
programs that could benefit from a Visiting Specialist in a particular
subject not currently offered but needed for program development. This
program does not support research or language training.
Institutions may request a specific individual as a Visiting Specialist,
in which case the institution must solicit a separate application from
this individual. However, if an individual is not named, a successful
proposal will be matched with a scholar from among former Fulbrighters
who indicated an interest in participating in the program.
Fulbright grants will include air travel, in-transit allowance, per diem
and an honorarium.
Application deadline: April 15, 2004.
