Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq, and the Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Programs for Egypt, Lebanon, and Tunisia are designed to bring junior scholars to U.S. host institutions for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. The intent of these 10-week programs is to equip scholars with the knowledge and tools needed to build the capacity of their home institutions and to advance the education of future generations. In addition, it lays the foundation for junior 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.
Participating institutions will enjoy a unique opportunity to establish lasting relationships with faculty members at universities in the scholars’ home countries and to build upon current efforts to internationalize their campuses and surrounding communities. Download Flyer >
