      Subject: New Islamic Program at Fulbright

      Dear Colleagues:

      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.
