USG EUROPEAN COUNCIL STUDY ABROAD FELLOWSHIP
Faculty Developmentopportunities in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, St. Petersburg or Waterford
Application Deadline: January 18, 2012
Recipients Notified: Late February
The fellowship will serve as a mentoring opportunity for faculty that have not previously taught on a study abroad program to visit a European Council site in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, St. Petersburg or Waterford and to participate in the program and excursions for one week (dates to be determined by individual programs) of one of the European Council study abroad programs in June/July 2012.
The European Council will provide fellowship recipients with $1,000 payment toward roundtrip airfare, per diems, and/or excursions, to be determined in consultation between the recipient and the program director. The Program site will provide accommodations and a primary health insurance plan through CISI for the one week spent on site. The fellowship recipients or their institutions need only provide the balance, as well as meals not provided on-site, and any personal travel and expenses not included in the week’s on-site programming. NOTE: Fellowship recipients must make their own flight arrangements.
Selected faculty are required to attend the April 21 faculty workshop as well as the May 19 student orientation at GCSU in Milledgeville before departing with the group in late June or early July. Fellowship recipients will participate in one week of the European Council program and learn how to develop study abroad classes for the European Council program.
Fellowship recipients are expected to submit an application to teach on a European Council program within the next three years.
