      Dear Sirs,

      The American Councils for International Education are proud to announce the
      stipend for Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP) for academic year
      2004/05.

      The program places university faculty from Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan,
      Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia,
      Moldova, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and
      Uzbekistan at selected higher educational institutions in the United
      States, through a process of open competition. JFDP Fellows work with an
      American colleague to further develop their knowledge of teaching
      methodologies, theoretical aspects of their field, and to create new
      courses and course materials for use at their home institutions. The
      program is intended to support those scholars who plan to return to their
      home country in order to continue their teaching and professional activities.


      The competition is open to citizens of the above countries, who currently
      teach at a higher educational institution in their home country, have a
      mastery of the English language, possess a university degree, and have two
      years of teaching experience in an institution of higher
      education. Applicants in the fields of Arts Management and Library and
      Archival Science need a university degree, two years of work experience in
      that field, and must currently teach or conduct trainings at an educational
      institution.



      For the 2004-2005 academic year, JFDP Fellows will undertake a 9-month,
      non-degree program (auditing courses, teaching/lecturing, developing
      curricula, attending conferences), and 2-month summer practicum. Fellows
      are placed at U.S. host institutions, which have facilities and faculty
      appropriate for their field of study. JFDP Fellows receive round-trip
      international and domestic transportation, medical insurance, monthly
      stipends, and a professional development fund.



      JFDP fields for 2004-2005 are as follows:

      American Studies

      Business Administration

      Economics

      Education Administration

      Environmental Studies

      History

      International Affairs

      Law

      Library & Archival Science

      Linguistics

      Philosophy
