COUNCIL FOR INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE OF SCHOLARS -
Fulbright Senior Specialists Program
Abstract: The Fulbright Senior Specialists Program is designed to provide
short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) for U.S. faculty and
professionals. Shorter grant lengths give specialists greater flexibility to
pursue a grant that works best with their current academic or professional
commitments. Specialists roster candidates are limited to one Specialists
grant per calendar year. Applications for the Fulbright Senior Specialists
Program are accepted on a rolling basis, and peer review of applications
is conducted eight times per year. Program Goals: (a) to increase the
participation of leading U.S. scholars and professionals in Fulbright academic
exchanges; (b) to encourage new activities that go beyond the traditional
Fulbright activities of lecturing and research; (c) to promote increased
connections between U.S. and non-U.S. post-secondary academic institutions.
FUNDING: Grant benefits include international economy fare travel and
approved related expenses plus a $200 per day honorarium. The honorarium
is payable upon completion of the grant and submission of an online final report
and travel expense report. Host institutions normally cover in-country per diem
costs for lodging, meals and transportation.

INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION IN CHEMISTRY BETWEEN
US INVESTIGATORS AND THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN GERMANY,
UNITED KINGDOM AND CHINA (ICC)
Abstract: The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to enhance
opportunities for collaborative activities between U.S. and foreign
investigators. To realize this goal the Chemistry Division at NSF has partnered
with the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; German Research Foundation),
the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) of the United
Kingdom and the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC). NSF Chemistry
will accept collaborative research proposals in chemistry that establish new bilateral
collaborations between U.S. investigators and investigators from Germany, United
Kingdom or China. The proposals will be written in English.The program seeks new
and highly innovative 3-year collaborative projects that break new ground and
demonstrate high level of synergy between the collaborating investigators. The program
will not accept proposals for projects that were funded in the past or are currently funded
by other funding sources. The program will also not accept proposals for projects that
largely overlap or are closely related to research projects that are currently carried out
in the collaborators' laboratories. The proposed 3-year projects must be in areas that
are supported by the NSF Division of Chemistry programs in Analytical and Surface
Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Theoretical
and Computational Chemistry. The program encourages the development and use of cyber
infrastructure to facilitate communication, data sharing and remote control of
instrumentation to increase the level of synergy of the proposed projects. The
program also encourages meaningful participation of graduate students, postdoctoral
research associates and juniorinvestigators in the proposed international research
collaborations since it seeks to develop a diverse, globally-engaged, U.S.
science and engineering workforce. Research activities of U.S. graduate students,
postdoctoral research associates and junior researchers, including those from
underrepresented groups, in the laboratories of international collaborators should
be an integral part of proposals submitted to this program.
Estimated number of awards: 10 -30 Dollars available: $10 million over three years.

collections. Thus, activities supported may include:
- proposing methods to rejoin via digitization "split" humanities collections
that currently exist on either side of the Atlantic;
- developing a detailed plan for the digitization of humanities collections that
could benefit U.S.-England research and performing a limited pilot digitization
program to test infrastructure and procedures;
- connecting existing split digitized collections, detailing suitable transatlantic
standards and communication strategies;
- creating a virtual archive or resource that would serve as middleware to join
complementary materials (analog or digital) in the U.S. and England;
- articulating how collaboration between U.S. and English digitization efforts
might function, including but not limited to developing selection criteria, identifying
the physical nature of the collection and its effect on digitization workflow,
undertaking test data capture, identifying suitable standards for international
collections, and indicating how collections could be exploited in U.S.- England
- comparing the needs of researchers in both the U.S. and England and their
uses of digitized primary resources.
Awards range from $100,000 to $240,000 (approximately £50,000 to £120,000)
for a one-year period.
