Fulbright Senior Specialist Program

Are you interested in doing a Fulbright?  The Fulbright Senior Specialists Program is a new Fulbright initiative offering short-term grants of two to six weeks to U.S. scholars and professionals.  Overseas academic institutions worldwide request Fulbright Senior Specialists throughout the year. 

Applicants for the program apply to be included on a roster of qualified candidates in specific fields of study including library and information science.  The Council for International Exchange of Scholars matches qualified candidates with incoming program requests.  Some of the activities grantees in library science have participated in include: consulting with libraries on various issues such as automation; records; management and cataloging; teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in information and library science; assisting in curriculum revision; assisting in the development of Masters programs in information and library science; and identifying and acquiring electronic resources. 

Additional program details are available at: www.cies.org/specialists or e-mail fulspec@cies.iie.org
