2021-2022 Fulbright Faculty Development Program
The Faculty Development Program is designed for junior faculty, currently teaching in Georgia. Applicants should intend to return to their position at their home institution upon completion of the program, continue their teaching responsibilities, and apply newly gained knowledge and experience. The goal of the program model is to introduce participants to best practices and theoretical approaches to curriculum development in the U.S. and provide them with concrete strategies on how to develop curriculum for a course, including an overview of academic and research resources. During the program, fellows will be expected to research and develop a course description, syllabus and outline specific teaching strategies for their proposed course.
- have citizenship of Georgia and permanent residence in the country;
- be eligible for a J-1 visa (with two-year home-country residence requirement);
- hold a university degree;
- be currently teaching at an institution of higher education;
- have at least two years of teaching experience at an institution of higher education by the time of application;
- demonstrate proficiency in oral and written English (selected finalists will be required to take the TOEFL test).
