The United States Embassy in Tanzania invites applications for the United States government’s Fulbright African Research Scholar Program (ARSP) for the year 2013 – 2014 from qualified Tanzanians. The Fulbright ARSP for the year 2013-2014 comprises two programs one for Research Scholars grant and the other for Curriculum Development Grants.
Research Grants awards are offered for African university faculty or research institute professionals for a period of 3 to 9 months to conduct research in any academic discipline at a U.S. academic or research institution beginning no earlier than August 2013 and no later than March 2014. Preference will be given to individuals with a doctorate degree, at least three years of university teaching experience, a productive scholarly record and whose projects relate directly to their ongoing teaching or research responsibilities. Length of grants is determined by research requirements as demonstrated in the proposal.
Program and Curriculum Development Grants
Program and Curriculum Development Grants awards of 3 to 5 months are offered for African university faculty or administrators to conduct research in any academic discipline at a U.S. academic or research institution beginning no earlier than August 2013 and no later than March 2014. Proposals should be linked to professional duties and demonstrate how the scholar will use the knowledge gained to develop new courses, curricula or programs at the home institution. These grants are designed for less experienced scholars who may not have had access to current research or instructional developments in their disciplines. University faculty who do not hold doctorate degrees are eligible for awards in this category but need strong letters of reference or invitation to convince the academic review panel to nominate them for awards. Length of grants is determined by research requirements as demonstrated in the proposal.
Applicants must have excellent command of English and be Tanzanian citizens currently working in Tanzania. Applicants should have approval from their home institution.
Deadline July 31, 2012
