CFA- Fulbright Opportunities in Central Eurasia

Posted by: Muriel Joffe <>

The Fulbright Scholar Program for Faculty and Professionals is
offering a variety of opportunities for both area and non-area
specialists to lecture, conduct research, or carry out both activities
in Central Eurasia for academic year 2009-10. The traditional
Fulbright Scholar Program offers awards that range from 2 to 10
months. Scholars may conduct research independently or in
collaboration with host country colleagues. Applications are welcome
from scholars in a broad range of disciplines in the arts, humanities,
social sciences and sciences. Opportunities also exist for
professionals in such fields as law, public administration, conflict
resolution, journalism, library science, and education. While many
awards specify project and host institution, there are a number of
open "All Discipline" awards that allow candidates to propose their
own projects and determine their host institution affiliation.
Foreign language skills may be required for certain research projects,
but lecturing awards are in English. The application deadline for
2009-10 is August 1, 2008. For general information about application
requirements and staff contacts, visit the CIES Web site at
