Fulbright Senior Specialist Program for Americans
As a complement to the Fulbright Senior Scholar Program, the Senior Specialist Program funds American academic experts who wish to undertake two to six-weeks projects in host country academic institutions. Activities may include presenting lectures; leading seminars and workshops; conducting needs assessments, surveys, research; participating in academic programs, conferences, seminars; consulting with administrators and faculty; assess and develop academic curricula or educational material; conduct teacher training.
Russian universities interested in hosting Senior Specialists must be willing to provide in-country transportation, meals and lodging. The Fulbright Program funds international transportation and provides a stipend to the Senior Specialist. For additional information, see http://www.cies.org/specialists/. Contact the Fulbright Program Office in Moscow for application forms and instructions. Only 10 Senior Specialist grants are awarded to Russia annually.
