The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program is back!
The program is available again to give an opportunity to university professors to pursue research or teach at a university in the United States.
This program offers Lebanese scholars the opportunity to establish professional contacts in their fields, develop collaborative research relationships with U.S. counterparts, and enhance their publications and professional experience.
The 2016-2017 Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program will start in the beginning of the coming academic year in July or August 2016 depending on the U.S. university which agrees to host the Lebanese scholar.
Lebanese scholars may seek affiliations with US institutions of higher learning for a period between 3 to 10 months.
The candidate is not bound by the start/end dates for his/her project; s/he has the freedom of choosing when s/he would like to start and end his/her project on condition that it respects the aforementioned duration (3 to 10 months.)
Interested candidates can log on to http://lebanon.usembassy.gov/fulbrightvisiting.html to know about the program and application instructions.
Please note that the application deadline is December 14, 2015.
This is a really great opportunity for a Lebanese faculty to participate in a fully-funded research or teaching program in the United States.
