      Fulbright-Hays Faculty Professional Development Seminar in Turkey
      During the Summer of 2004 (June 1- July 5)

      Contingent upon funding by the Fulbright - Hays Group Projects Abroad
      program of the U.S. Department of Education, Tyler Junior College will
      sponsor a five week faculty professional development seminar in Turkey
      during the summer of 2004. Fifteen educators, five from each of the
      following: university, community college and public school teachers and
      administrators, will be selected to participate in this project. The
      seminar is intended to enhance professional competence of individual
      teachers, to enrich the curriculum in the social sciences and humanities
      and to develop well-rounded programs in Turkish studies, Middle East
      studies and/or global education.
      The five-week program will include an intensive academic component at
      Middle East Technical and Bilkent Universities, in Ankara. There will
      also be organized field visits and study tours in a number of historic
      sites in several cities, as well as visit to cultural centers, museums,
      historic monuments, theaters, schools, hospitals, factories and research
      centers.

      The federal grant is expected to meet most of the expenses in
      connection with the seminar: international travel, surface travel within
      Turkey, hotel rooms (double occupancy) and two meals a day, as well as
      expenses in connection with officially scheduled conferences and
      cultural activities. The registration fee is $950 for the participants
