2009 Returning Scholars
Academic Fellowship Program
Open Society Institute

The Academic Fellowship Program (AFP) announces the 2009-10
competition for the Returning Scholars Fellowship. The program offers
financial, professional, and departmental development support, as well
as opportunities for further professional growth as AFP alumni.
Fellowships include a monthly stipend and various allowances,
including departmental, professional development, and mobility funds.
Fellowships begin in August or September 2009, last one academic year,
and are renewable.

The program, as part of a conscious strategy to combat "brain drain"
in the social sciences and humanities, places Returning Scholars in
departments that have been carefully selected as AFP partners. A
list of current AFP partner departments can be found on our website,
though the list is subject to change for the 2009/10 academic year.
Potential applicants are advised to explore placement possibilities
with local AFP staff before applying.
