US Department of Education FULBRIGHTS for Faculty Research Abroad

Description: U.S. Department of Education (US/ED) Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad (FRA) Fellowships are only for a very narrow range of faculty members who wish to conduct 3-12 months of research abroad related to their teaching specialization and their research interests and that leads to the development or strengthening of modern foreign language or area studies curricula at the University of Michigan. There will be an estimated 23 awards available for 2009-10.

Eligibility Criteria: Applicants for these awards may be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have been engaged in teaching relevant to their specialization in modern foreign languages or non-West-European area studies courses for at least two years prior to the time the research begins and who will continue to be employed by this university during the tenure of this award. Their research projects must be 3-12 months in length and designed so that they are relevant to their specialization. These awards are not given for dissertation research nor for research that could be conducted in the U.S.A.

Deadline: Our local UM application deadline is November 4, 2008. In addition, all eligible applicants must be on Beni's US/ED Fulbright email user group by no later than October 27, 2008.
