Full Description
Faculty from SAI affiliate colleges and universities are invited to apply for the 2013 - 2014 Faculty Fellows Program in Florence and Rome. A single fellowship will be awarded for 2013 - 2014 and can be arranged for four consecutive weeks during any of the following periods: June 1 - July 31, 2013 or September 15 - November 30, 2013 or February 1 - March 31, 2014.

SAI is offering this opportunity in order to encourage faculty to broaden their teaching and scholarship activities in Italy. No knowledge of Italian language is required. The award includes international air travel, and private one bedroom apartment accommodation for one month (four consecutive weeks) in Florence or Rome. Faculty who wish to have family or friends accompany them may be subject to a utility fee.

The purposes of the Faculty Fellows Program are to foster a deeper connection between faculty from affiliate schools and Italian institutions and to provide opportunities to faculty for continuing their research and studies. In addition to pursuing individual research interests, the Faculty Fellow will serve as an occasional guest lecturer in their area of study for the SAI program in Florence or Rome. Proposed topics should be submitted as part of the application. The fellowship is individually designed, based on the faculty’s needs and interests.

THE DEADLINE FOR THE 2013 - 2014 FACULTY FELLOWS PROGRAM IS NOVEMBER 30, 2012.

Applications should be submitted by email to facultyfellows@saiprograms.com

The application consists of a letter of intent from the faculty member and curriculum vitae. The letter of intent should include the faculty member’s discipline,
proposed scholarly activities in Italy, proposed topics for two guest lectures, city of choice (Florence and Rome), proposed time period for the Fellowship, and description of how the fellowship activities will enrich the faculty’s professional knowledge and experience. The curriculum vitae should include recent research, professional achievements, and a list of courses taught in the past two years.

Criteria for selection include demonstration of the faculty’s interest in pursuing scholarly activities that develop or expand breadth and depth of knowledge
regarding Italy; and ability to complete a specific portion of a scholarly project during the Fellowship. Applicants will be notified in mid-January 2013 of their status for the faculty fellowship.
