      International Scholars Fellowship Program

      The International Scholars Fellowship Program invites highly-qualified scholars in the social sciences and humanities to teach and/or consult at selected university departments in Southeastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and Mongolia.

      The program welcomes applications from scholars holding PhDs in anthropology, area/cultural studies, gender studies, economics, history, political science, international relations, psychology, public administration, philosophy, social work, sociology, human rights & public law, and journalism/media studies.
      Candidates apply to teach outside their country of citizenship and must hold a PhD from a Western-accredited university. The Academic Fellowship Program (AFP) operates in Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Tajikistan, and Ukraine.

      The program offers two arrangements:
      Resident International Scholars live in the host country and teach courses for one academic year at partner universities. Fellows also work on a variety of projects within their host departments, and benefit from the diverse academic network connecting AFP program countries.
      Non-resident International Scholars share their expertise with host departments on a consulting basis, visiting the institution for several short consultations and remaining in contact for mentoring and advice between visits. Non-resident fellows are senior or well-established academics; recent PhD recipients will not be considered.
      Fellowship packages include a stipend, transportation, and accommodation. Resident fellows also receive health insurance and various other allowances, including professional development funds.

      Application deadline: February 15, 2006.
      Applications may be accepted after the deadline if fellowships remain unfilled. Fellowships begin in August or September 2006 and normally last one academic year, with the possibility of renewal.

        International Scholars Fellowship Program

        The International Scholars Fellowship Program invites highly-qualified scholars in social sciences and humanities from around the world to teach and/or consult at selected university departments in South Eastern Europe, parts of the former Soviet Union, and Mongolia.

        The program, part of the Academic Fellowship Program (AFP), welcomes applications from faculty, retired faculty, and others holding PhDs in anthropology, area/cultural studies, gender studies, economics, history, political science, international relations, psychology, public administration, philosophy, social work, sociology, human rights & public law (JDs), and journalism/media studies. The program does not support scholars in philology, the visual and performing arts, or business.
        Candidates apply to teach outside their country of citizenship and must hold an internationally-recognized PhD or JD. AFP operates in Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Tajikistan, and Ukraine.
        AFP fellows are placed in carefully selected university departments that are amenable to change and demonstrate a realistic and clear vision for future development. A list of current AFP partner departments can be found on our website. The list is subject to change in the 2006-07 academic year.

        The International Scholars Fellowship Program offers two arrangements:
        Resident International Scholars live in the host country and teach courses for one academic year at partner universities. Fellows also work on a variety of projects within their host departments, and benefit from the diverse academic network connecting AFP program countries.
        Nonresident International Scholars share their expertise with host departments on a consulting basis, visiting the institution for several short consultations and remaining in contact for mentoring and advice between visits. Nonresident fellows are senior or well-established academics; recent PhD recipients are not be considered.
        Fellowships generally include a stipend, transportation, and accommodation. Resident fellows also receive health insurance and various other allowances.

        The Academic Fellowship Program was launched by the Open Society Institute's Higher Education Support Program (HESP) in 2004. AFP builds on HESP's experience as core funder of the Civic Education Project (CEP) and augments some fellowship opportunities supported previously by CEP while also adopting new approaches for achieving lasting education reform.

        Application deadline: March 20, 2006. Applications may be accepted after the deadline if fellowships remain unfilled. Fellowships begin in August or September 2006 and normally last one academic year, with the possibility of renewal.
