Fullbright Sponsoring Visiting Specialist Program in Islamic Studies

The Fullbright Visiting Specialists Pgrogram: Direct Access to the Muslim World is now offering funding to bring specialists from the Muslim world to US university campuses. The goals of the program are to enrich your campus’ and community’s understanding of Islamic civilization and the history, politics, and culture of today’s Muslim world; to bring access to the Muslim world to study abroad programs, and to jump-start your campus offering on courses in Islam or Area Studies. Through the Fulbright Visiting Specialists Program: Direct Access to the Muslim World, U.S. higher educational institutions can host a Specialist from Muslim communities in the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa or the Balkans for three to six weeks of intensive lecturing, consultation, and a community outreach program. Deadline to apply for the spring 2007 semester: June 1, 2006.
