Scholar-In-Residence Program


Program Goal Through the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program (S-I-R), U.S. colleges and universities collaborate with scholars from Egypt and other countries to assist in internationalizing U.S. campuses, curriculum and communities. Fulbright S-I-Rs teach primarily on the undergraduate level in their areas of expertise and provide a cross-cultural or international perspective to promote curriculum and program development. Their activities typically enhance the institution’s international/global studies programs, interdisciplinary course/program offerings and broaden international cooperation. In addition, Fulbright S-I-Rs are expected to engage in on-campus and community activities in various ways throughout the program’s duration. S-I-R grants are for either one semester or an academic year. In AY2023-2024, the Binational Fulbright Commission in Egypt (BFCE) is accepting applications on behalf of the below U.S. institution: DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana Discipline: Humanities Specialization: Global Studies Program Duration/Dates: 10 months (August 2023 – May 2024)  Eligibility Criteria

Special Notes

  • DePauw University seeks a scholar from the MENA region to teach one course per semester in the new Global Studies Fellows Program (GSFP), work with GSFP student(s) on a research project, and collaborate with a DePauw mentor (a tenure-track faculty member) to organize: 1) an interdisciplinary global learning faculty and staff reading group (Fall semester); 2) a global learning pedagogy workshop (Spring semester); 3) an end-of-year presentation of GSFP student-faculty research projects (Spring semester) and; 4) give public talks at Putnam County Library and Wabash College.
  • The scholar will teach one course per semester: an “Introduction to Global Studies” course and an upper-division GSFP course in the scholar’s area of academic expertise. The former is a new course, and the scholar will participate in its development by creating a teaching module for it.
  • The scholar will also help shape the program by co-organizing a global learning pedagogy workshop (open to all Great Lakes College Association schools) and a global learning reading group for DePauw faculty and staff members. The scholar will also mentor students through a student-faculty research project, by co-organizing a presentation of GSFP student-faculty research, and by working with leaders of student groups to support DePauw’s internationalization efforts (e.g., International Education Week events).
  • The scholar will meet a variety of faculty and staff members. As a non-voting member of the GSFP Steering Committee, the scholar will also meet a cadre of DePauw faculty members with shared research and teaching interests in global learning. Since the GSFP will be affiliated with the Center for Diversity and Inclusion and the Prindle Institute for Ethics, the scholar will also interact with administrators, faculty, and students who are part of these programs. The scholar will also be invited to all DePauw faculty events.
  • In addition to the on-campus activities, the scholar will be invited to give two public talks in the local community. The Putnam County Public Library in Greencastle, Indiana, will arrange for a talk on a global topic related to the scholar’s academic expertise in the Fall of 2023. Wabash College will also invite the scholar to give a public lecture and to meet with Wabash faculty members and students for a reception or dinner to help facilitate connections.
