Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Extended Deadline: January 28, 2013

U.S. universities are invited to apply to host the Natural Sciences cohort of approximately ten Fulbright Visiting Scholars from Libya for faculty development, mentoring and cultural exchange activities.  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.

Program Goals
  • Build higher education capacity in Libya through faculty development and mentoring for junior scholars
  • Foster long-term collaboration and institutional linkages between Libyan scholars and U.S. academics
  • Promote mutual understanding between Libyans and Americans by facilitating the scholars’ engagement with the broader host campus community
CIES seeks proposals from U.S. universities to implement the ten-week summer program scheduled to be held from July 7, 2013 to September 14, 2013. The selected host institution will receive $7,500 per scholar for administration of the program and may be reimbursed up to $4,500 per scholar for housing, as well as up to $1,000 per scholar for lab fees and other costs associated with facilitating the scholars’ access to library, computer, or other lab resources. 
Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s 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).

For more information about program goals, host institution eligibility requirements, and proposal information, please visit: www.cies.org/Fulbright/Libya/

Proposals should be submitted to Jillian Foster, jfoster@iie.org, by Monday, January 28.
