FULBRIGHT VISITING SCHOLAR PROGRAM COMPETITION
FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2013-2014 IS NOW OPEN
Application Deadline: NOVEMBER 20, 2012
The Embassy of the United States of America in Serbia is pleased to announce the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program competition for the 2013-2014 academic year. The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program is a non-degree post-doctoral award program for junior and senior researchers, university lecturers and experts from academic institutions in Serbia. This program brings scholars to the United States for advanced research and/or university lecturing. All applicants must currently be affiliated with one of the universities in Serbia. In addition, all qualified applicants are expected to have the capacity and commitment to take full advantage of a program of research or lecturing at a U.S. university, and be willing to share their experience and knowledge after returning to Serbia. The Fulbright experience should be of value not only to the scholar, but also to the scholar’s home university – its students and faculty – as well as to the U.S. host institution. Fulbright scholars serve as cultural ambassadors and should be prepared to speak about their country, culture, and research to academic and community groups.
Fields of Specialization: Applications will be considered in the following areas of specialization:
· Applicants must be citizens of the Republic of Serbia.
· Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in the field of research or lecturing.
· Applicants must be proficient in oral and written English.
· Applicants must be eligible for J-1 visa, which requires the grantee to return to Republic of Serbia for a minimum of two years at the end of the grant period.
· Applicants must receive a satisfactory medical clearance.
· Persons desiring permanent residence in the United States are not eligible.
Dependents: Since the funds are limited, the Fulbright program at this time does not permit accompanying dependents.
