Seeking Host Campuses for Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Libya


Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague


Deadline: December 5, 2012

The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Libya is designed to bring junior Libyan scholars to U.S. host institutions for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. The intent of the ten-week program is to equip grantees with the knowledge and tools needed to build the capacity of universities in Libya and to advance the education of future generations of Libyans. In addition, it lays the foundation for Libyan scholars and their U.S. hosts to develop long-term institutional relationships and to identify areas of cooperation that can be sustained beyond the grant period.

Through this request for proposal, CIES seeks six institutions to implement the ten-week summer program scheduled to be held from July 7, 2013 to September 14, 2013. Approximately ten scholars will be placed in discipline-based cohorts at each of the six selected U.S. host institutions. U.S. host institutions are to submit a proposal to host scholars in one of the following disciplines: Engineering; Information Technology; Natural Sciences; Public Administration; Public Health; TEFL/linguistics.

Participating institutions will enjoy a unique opportunity to establish lasting relationships with faculty members at universities in Libya and to build upon current efforts to internationalize their campuses and surrounding communities.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), this program is administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), a division of the Institute of International Education (IIE).
