JUNIOR FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (JFDP 2019)

06-10-2018

 

The Binational Fulbright commission in Egypt announced about the Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Program for Egypt.
 
The 2019 Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Program will bring young professors from Egypt to U.S. institutions for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities in the fields of Renewable Energy and Engineering, Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), and Public Health from July 5 through September 13, 2017. During this 10 - week program, professors will be introduced to new teaching and research methods, observe classes, attend seminars, and develop linkages with American faculty through weekly mentoring sessions. On-going community engagement with university-identified host families, volunteers, or others in the broader local community will facilitate the professors’ participation in outreach activities, including visits to historical sites and attendance at cultural events. While introduction to new research methods in the scholars’ disciplines does constitute one component of the Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Program, the program is not intended to provide a venue for individual research projects.

 

 

The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
