Faculty Development Fellowship Program
Study Subject : Design new courses, present conference papers, complete articles and books, expand research topics and develop new teaching materials.
Employer : Open society Foundations
Level : Non- Degree
In 1997, the Open Society Institute introduced an innovative faculty exchange non-degree program designed to :
- encourage the pursuit of academic careers
- generate new approaches to curricular and pedagogical reform, and
- build and sustain local and international academia networks
Each year for up to three years, fellows spend one semester at a U.S. university and one semester teaching at their home universities.
Grantees design new courses, present conference papers, complete articles and books, expand research topics and develop new teaching materials.
Over the course of two years, fellows will alternate semesters between a U.S. university and their home university. Participants may apply for a third year once they have successfully completed the first two years.
Approximately 20 awards will be granted to professors teaching humanities or social sciences.
The Faculty Development Fellowship is being offered to applicants in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Mongolia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Fellows will begin their first semester in January 2012.
Faculty Development Fellowship Application Deadline : February 10, 2011
