Faculty of Education seeks U.S. Fulbright Scholars for the 2020-21 academic year

The U.S. Fulbright Scholar competition is now open and accepting applications for the University of Alberta’s Fulbright Research Chair in Education to be taken up in the 2020-2021 academic year. To that end, the Faculty of Education is seeking help in identifying American scholars who would be prospective candidates for pursuing education research at the University of Alberta.

The 2020-21 Fulbright Scholar competition is open to applications until Sept. 19, 2019.

Sosanya Jones, a professor in Southern Illinois University’s Department of Educational Administration and Higher Education, was the visiting Fulbright Scholar in 2016. Over her four-month stay, she pursued research for a project entitled “Inclusionary Internationalization: A Multi-Case Study of Policies and Practices in Alberta's Institutions of Higher Education.”
