Opportunity: Fulbright Specialist Program

The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) seeks qualified academics and professionals in the fields of Applied Linguistics/TEFL field to join its Roster of approved Fulbright Specialist candidates.

Administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars on behalf of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the program is designed to provide short-term grant opportunities for U.S. faculty and professionals. Project activities focus on strengthening and supporting the development needs of higher education institutions overseas and do not fund research.

To view upcoming grant opportunities in the Applied Linguistics/TEFL, visit http://www.cies.org/specialists/Grantee_Information/Grant_Opportunities.htm .

Minimum requirements to apply include U.S. citizenship at the time of application. For the Applied Linguistics/TEFL discipline a Ph.D. or ED.D. is strongly preferred, plus five years or more of post-doctoral teaching or equivalent professional experience. Grant activities involve assisting foreign educators in the areas of needs assessment, curriculum development and providing teacher training. Applicants recommended by independent discipline peer review committees and approved by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FSB) become roster candidates for a five-year term and may have up to two Fulbright Specialist awards. Candidates that are approved for the roster may then be matched with approved project requests developed by higher education institutions overseas. This may be an opportunity for specialists to collaborate with existing contacts and further develop institutional linkages.

The next deadline to submit applications for the rolling admissions process and merit review will be July 27th. For more information on the Fulbright Specialist Program please visit www.cies.org/specialists , or email fulspec at iie dot org, or call 202.686.6235.
