Seeking Host Campuses for Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Deadline: December 5, 2012

The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq is designed to bring junior Iraqi scholars to U.S. host institutions for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. The intent of the ten-week program is to equip scholars with the knowledge and tools needed to build the capacity of universities in Iraq and to advance the education of future generations of Iraqis. In addition, it lays the foundation for Iraqi 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, IIE’s Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) seeks five host institutions to implement the ten-week summer program scheduled to be held from June 29, 2013 through September 7, 2013. Approximately seven scholars will be placed in disciplined-based cohorts at each of the five selected U.S. host institutions. U.S. host institutions are to submit a proposal to host scholars in one of the following disciplines: American Literature; Engineering; Political Science; Science and Technology; TEFL/linguistics.

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

Funded by the U.S. Embassy Baghdad, Iraq and supported by 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).
