Subject: Fulbright grants for U.S. faculty and professionals


Dear Colleague:

In late March we alerted you to the opening of the 1998-99 Fulbright
Scholar Program competition for U.S. college and university faculty
and professionals in TEFL and linguistics. I am writing to remind you
that the AUGUST 1 DEADLINE is approaching and to urge you to consider
applying for a Fulbright.

More than 700 awards are being offered in over 120 countries for
university lecturing, advanced research, and other professional
activities. Opportunities exist in every area of the social sciences,
arts and humanities, sciences, and many professional fields.

Basic Eligibility Requirements:

Ph.D. or equivalent professional/terminal degree at the time of
application and U.S. citizenship (permanent residency is not
sufficient).

For professionals and artists outside academe, recognized professional
standing comparable to that associated with the doctorate in higher
education is required, unless otherwise noted in the awards book.

College or university teaching experience is required at the level and
in the field of the proposed lecturing activity for lecturing and
combined lecturing/research awards.

Grant Duration:

Awards range in duration from two months to twelve months. Most
lecturing assignments are for an academic term/semester or a full
academic year.

Language:

Although the majority of teaching assignments are in English, foreign
language proficiency is expected for lecturing awards in some areas
(e.g., Latin America, francophone Africa) and for some research
projects.
