U.S. Embassy Announces the 2016 Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Program

The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2016 Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Program, which will bring young professors from Lebanon to the U.S. for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities from July 6 through September 14, 2016.   Fields of exchange activities will include Rural and Economic Development, English Language including linguistics and Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), as well as International Relations and Political Science.  During this 10 week program, professors will be introduced to new teaching and research methods, observe classes, attend seminars, and build relationships with American faculty through weekly mentoring sessions.  On-going community events with university-identified host families and volunteers, visits to historic sites, and attendance at cultural events will also deepen visiting professors’ integration into the community.

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. Government’s flagship international educational exchange program.  Since 1946, tens of thousands of scholars from around the world have participated in the Fulbright program.

Interested candidates are encouraged to visit our website and follow the instructions to apply for this program.

The U.S. Government pays for the participants’ expenses including roundtrip airfare, accommodations, and health insurance. Competition is merit-based, and scholars from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be considered without regard to race, religion, sex, age, and/or physical impairment.
