Message 2: Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP), ACTR/ACCELS

Call for Applications
from U.S. Host Institutions
for the 2001-2002 Academic Year


The Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP) brings university faculty from 
the Newly Independent States (NIS) to the United States for a one-year 
fellowship. Current JFDP Fellows are from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, 
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The 
fellowship consists of non-degree study in the Humanities and Social Sciences,
during which the Fellows create curricula for new courses, modify curricula 
for courses they already teach, and develop new teaching methodologies. 
In addition, JFDP Fellows may focus on developing the administrative 
infrastructures of their home universities. Fellows fulfill these goals by 
informally auditing and observing courses, working with faculty in hosting 
departments, networking, attending conferences, and teaching (if circumstances
permit). The program lasts one year, and includes a summer practicum.

The JFDP is fully funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of 
the U.S. Department of State, and is administered by the American Councils 
for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS.

Please visit the JFDP website at or write to to receive more information and an application. All interested 
faculty, departments, research centers and university offices are welcome to 

Deadline for submitting application: March 30, 2001.
