Fulbright program in China significantly expanded
The world has watched in fascination as China has become one of the most dynamic and powerful nations on earth. The exponential pace of social and economic change that typifies the People’s Republic of China has also had a dramatic impact on every aspect of its educational system—the institutions, faculty, students and pedagogy. The China Fulbright Scholar Program is open to American scholars in the social sciences and humanities who are encouraged to share their expertise with Chinese scholars, students and policy makers for a semester or an academic year. For the teaching and teaching/research awards, there is a particular interest in scholars with expertise in disciplines related to the study of the U.S. such as American literature and American history and in law.
Academic year awards begin in August 2013 and semester awards begin in August 2013 or February 2014. Fulbright Scholar grants in China include a salary supplement stipend that brings the total stipend up to a maximum of $50,000 for one semester and $100,000 for an academic year. This amount does not include travel allowances. There is also a generous dependent education allowance.
Scholars interested in a three- to nine-month grant in China must submit an application by August 1, 2012.
