Call for Applications: Ambassador’s Distinguished Scholars Program
February 8, 2019

The Institute for International Education (IIE) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Ambassador’s Distinguished Scholars Program in Ethiopia. The program seeks U.S. citizens with terminal degrees to join the faculty of one of four Ethiopian universities to engage in primary research with doctoral students, work to publish results, teach, design curriculum, mentor students, and collaborate with faculty at their host institution. American academics have a tremendous opportunity to help develop and shape the rapidly-expanding higher education system of Ethiopia.

The current round of applications seeks scholars to work in Ethiopia from August 2019 until June 2020, with placements possible in a variety of fields at one of four Ethiopian institutions: Bahir Dar University, the University of Gondar, Haramaya University, and Mekelle University. Program benefits include, but are not limited to, a monthly stipend, housing allowance, medical insurance and airfare for the grantee and a dependent. IIE’s office in Ethiopia will support the grantees.

Application deadline: February 28, 2019
