Re: Opportunity to Host International Scholars

American Councils is pleased to announce opportunities for U.S.
institutions to host participants of the Junior Faculty Development
Program (JFDP) for the 2009 spring semester. The JFDP is a non-degree,
professional development program intended to provide opportunities for
university faculty from Eurasia and Southeastern Europe to expand
their knowledge in their field of study and develop new ideas and
educational programs through exposure to U.S. academic life.

JFDP Fellows help internationalize their U.S. host institutions by
bringing cultural diversity and new perspectives in their academic
disciplines. During the program, JFDP Fellows may make presentations,
give special lectures, co-teach courses or participate in departmental
projects, if such opportunities exist. U.S. hosts are asked to provide
a faculty advisor who is willing to guide a fellow with academic
pursuits related to their field of study, professional networking, and

JFDP fully funds participants' travel, living, insurance, and
professional development expenses.

To apply to host JFDP fellows, please complete the online application
form found here: The application
deadline is October 1, 2008. American Councils will send notification
concerning application status by mid October.

The JFDP is a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural
Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and administered by the
American Councils for International Education.

For more information on the program, please visit our website or
contact the JFDP office at American Councils.
