Junior Faculty Development Program
JFDP offers full fellowships to university-level instructors in the early stages of their careers. Program participants will
have a strong potential for leadership in their disciplines, an interest in broadening their knowledge of the subjects they
teach, and a desire to develop and maintain on-going contacts between their home and host institutions.
The major goal of this program is to provide opportunities for academics from participating countries to exchange ideas
with U.S. academics in their respective fields of teaching, and to increase collaboration and cooperation between
universities in the United States and the participating countries.
Funding: Nearly $1.5 million for 70 fellowships
Insiderís Tip: JFDP participation is restricted to university instructors in the humanities and social sciences from
Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia/Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia,
Montenegro, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
