CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

2003-2004 Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP) Eurasia
Administered by the American Councils for International Education: 
ACTR/ACCELS
A Program of the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational 
and Cultural Affairs

APPLICATION DUE DATE: 17:00, December 6, 2002

The JFDP is a non-degree, professional development program intended to 
provide opportunities for junior university faculty with great potential 
as scholars and instructors in their disciplines to:

� develop new courses and implement curriculum reform at their home 
institutions;
� cultivate teaching skills and techniques derived from exposure to U.S. 
educational methods;
� expand the information base in their fields of study, and;
� become a vehicle for on-going contact and exchange between home and 
host institutions.

The competition is open to citizens of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, 
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine 
and Uzbekistan. Faculty must currently teach at a higher educational 
institution in their home country, have a mastery of the English language, 
possess a university degree, and have two years of teaching experience in 
an institution of higher education. Applicants in the fields of Arts 
Management and Library and Archival Science need a university degree, two 
years of work experience in that field, and must currently teach at an 
educational institution.

For the 2003-2004 academic year, JFDP Fellows will undertake a nine-month, 
non-degree program. Program activities include observing courses, 
developing curricula, gathering resource materials, attending conferences, 
collaborating with U.S. colleagues, giving presentations and possibly 
co-teaching. After the academic year, Fellows complete a two-month summer 
practicum. Fellows are placed at U.S. host institutions that have 
facilities and faculty appropriate for their field of study. JFDP Fellows 
receive round-trip international and domestic transportation, medical 
insurance, monthly stipends, and a professional development fund. Since 
the JFDP is a non-degree program, Fellows are not required or permitted to 
receive transcripts, degrees, grades or credit.
