Weiser Professional Development Awards

The Ronald and Eileen Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia at the University of Michigan invites applications for Weiser Professional Development Awards from faculty and artists teaching at institutions of higher education!                                                  

The awards support short-term (3-4 week) research visits to the University of Michigan. Paid expenses include round-trip airfare, housing, health insurance, and a modest per diem. Visits may be planned for the months of March, April, September, October, or November 2015. Prospective applicants should read all Frequently Asked Questions here:www.ii.umich.edu/wcee/opportunities/visitingfellows.

Applicants may propose projects in any field of research or teaching with a faculty partner at the University of Michigan. Candidates must have excellent oral and written English language skills; proficiency will be verified. These awards are made possible thanks to a gift from Ambassador Ronald Weiser, U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia from 2001-04, and his wife, Eileen Lappin Weiser.
