The Cultural Affairs of the Embassy of the United States of America announces the availability of the 2004 Fulbright American Studies Institutes, a series of six-week graduate-level academic programs for multinational groups of university faculty and scholars from abroad.  Each program is conducted by a U.S. college or university, and focuses on a particular American Studies discipline or theme.   

Candidates should be active university level faculty who have, or may soon assume, responsibility for teaching and curriculum development in U.S. Studies areas related to the program theme, e.g. U.S. Economic System, U.S. Foreign Policy, Role of U.S. in Global Economy.

Priority will be given to candidates who:
    1)  have firm plans to enhance, update or develop courses an/or educational materials with a U.S. Studies focus or component, 
    2)  have limited recent firsthand academic experience in the U.S., and
    3)  have a special interest in the subject as demonstrated through past scholarship, accomplishments and professional duties.

The U.S. State Department will cover all institute costs, including international airfare and allowances; domestic travel and ground transportation; book, cultural, mailing and incidental allowances; and housing and meals.  All participants will receive health insurance coverage.
