Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP) 2011

Fellowship Opportunity for University Faculty Members from Eurasia & Southeast Europe
The JFDP is a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State (ECA). American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS, an American non-profit, non-governmental organization, receives a grant from ECA to manage the JFDP and oversee each participant's successful completion of the program.

The JFDP provides university instructors with a semester-long opportunity to engage in curriculum development and explore alternative teaching methodologies; expand their knowledge in their fields of study; gather new teaching materials and resources; and, develop relationships between their U.S. host universities and their home universities. JFDP Fellows work with faculty members at universities in the United States. Individuals may apply for fields in the humanities and social sciences. Each JFDP Fellow will spend a total of five (5) months (January-May 2011) in the United States.
