Fulbright Awards in the Netherlands
The Fulbright Scholar Program is offering several lecturing and lecturing/research grants to the Netherlands for the 2009-10 competition that is currently underway. Several general “all disciplines” awards (#9316) afford both recent Ph.D.s and more established scholars the opportunity to lecture, conduct research, or do a combination of both in their area of expertise. In addition, several Senior Professorships in American Culture (#9317) allow full professors with at least 5 years of teaching experience the opportunity to teach and conduct research in a variety of disciplines related to American culture. For this award, topics of interest include but are not limited to American history, law, economics, political science, sociology, literature, communications, music, art history, and theatre.
While lecturing is in English for each of these awards, Dutch language abilities are required for the research component. U.S. citizenship and a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree are required. For general award information and the online application, visit www.cies.org or contact Program Officer Alisha Scott (email@example.com; 202.686.6244).

DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship Program
The DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship Program, funded by a generous grant from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), is designed to bring scholars and specialists working on Germany, Europe, and/or transatlantic relations to the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) for research stays of two months each. Fellowships include a monthly stipend of up to $4,725, depending on the seniority of the applicant, transportation to and from Washington, and office space at the Institute.

DAAD/AICGS Research Fellows will be expected to produce a short analytical essay that will be published on the AICGS website and distributed via the Institute's bimonthly email newsletter, The AICGS Advisor.
