Subject: Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP)

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 professional development program. JFDP Fellows are selected 
through open competitions in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, 
Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Turkmenistan, 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 and links 
between their host and home universities. Fellows fulfill these goals by 
informally auditing and observing courses, working with faculty in hosting 
departments, networking, attending conferences, and teaching (if circumstance
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.

All interested faculty, departments, research centers and university 
offices are welcome to apply. The JFDP office has extended its deadline, 
and is accepting applications through April 20, 2001. To receive more 
information and an application, contact Denise Ifkovic at 202-833-7522 or 
at An application may also be downloaded at
