Fulbright Distinguished Chair Award application deadline reminder, 1 August

(20 July 2017)

In April we announced sponsorship of the Fulbright-University of Manchester Distinguished Chair (Humanities), which supports eminent American scholars with a distinguished publication and teaching record in the humanities. The duration of the annual award is one academic term (three to six months) and will commence from September 2018.

The campaign to attract the best candidates through webinars, email outreach and social media will soon close. Colleagues at the University are encouraged to remind their network of US academics to consider applying for the Fulbright-University of Manchester Distinguished Chair award online through the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES). The application deadline is 1 August 2017. 

Full details of the award including award requirements, stipend and duration are available on the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Catalogue of Awards website
