The Civic Education Project (CEP) invites applications for its 2004-05 Local Faculty Fellowship program. Applications accepted from October 1, 2003 to March 1, 2004. Fellowships begin in September 2004
The Local Faculty Fellowship program is open to citizens of Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Serbia and Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Academics from the above countries having graduated (or expecting to graduate by September 2004) from a North American or West European university with a postgraduate degree in a social science are encouraged to apply. CEP supports efforts to return to, and remain in, university teaching in the Fellow's home country by providing a monthly stipend, teaching materials, and participation in various CEP events and activities.
