Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program 2018

The 2018 Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq is now open. The 2018 Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq will bring Iraqi scholars to U.S. institutions from June 30 through September 8, 2018 for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. Four discipline-based cohorts ( see disciplines down below) will spend 10 weeks at selected U.S. host institutions, where they will be introduced to new teaching and research methods, observe classes, attend seminars, and develop linkages with American faculty through weekly mentoring sessions. Ongoing community engagement with university-identified host families, volunteers, or others in the broader local community will facilitate the scholars’ participation in outreach activities, including visits to historical sites and attendance at cultural events.
Scholars will number as follows and focus on one of the following fields of study:
1 Science and Technology
2) Engineering
3) Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL)/Linguistics
4) Business Administration and Global Entrepreneurship.
