2010 Teaching Fellowship Program for Eurasian and Eastern European Studies
IREX is pleased to announce its 2010 Teaching Fellowship Program for Eurasian and Eastern European Studies, a program designed by IREX to expand the field of Eurasian and Eastern European area studies to accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) throughout the United States.
The program will award individual fellowships of up to $12,000 to current adjunct or full-time professors to develop and teach an introductory course in this field at a local HBCU or HSI for an academic semester (fall 2010 and/or spring 2011) with the possibility of receiving additional funding for a follow-on course during the second semester. Additionally, the Teaching Fellow will liaise directly with administrators of his/her home institution and the HBCU/HSI to develop a sustainable institutional partnership.
The primary goal of the program is to broaden and diversify the field of area studies by introducing Eurasian and/or Eastern European courses on the home campuses of local HBCUs and HSIs that traditionally have not had the resources to offer such coursework. Students who enroll in these courses will ultimately be encouraged to continue their studies and pursue careers in this field.
Eligible candidates will be required to:
a) Be U.S. citizens or permanent residents;
b) Be current adjunct or full-time professors
