Ann Murphy, an evidence, taxation, and trusts and estates Professor from Gonzaga, who is in Bejing, China on a Fulbright scholarship, forwards me this message:
Late applications are being accepted for 2008-09 Fulbright Scholar awards in China from scholars in the field of law. Share your expertise with Chinese colleagues and students and contribute to building the "rule of law" in China while you learn about this fascinating, rapidly changing society. Law specializations of particular interest include: administrative, business, constitutional, investment, tax, civil, intellectual property, comparative, contract , intellectual property and international law. Grants are for one semester (5 months) or the academic year (10 months). One semester grants can start in late August 2008 or February 2009. Academic year grants start in late August 2008. Grantees are placed in the top universities in China. The benefit package for the Fulbright Scholar awards in China is unique because it includes a salary supplement stipend. For more information, visit http://www.cies.org/award_book/award2008/country/EasChiCH.htm or contact David Adams, senior program officer at CIES, 202-686-4021 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The immediate thing that pops into my head besides this being a great opportunity is that the summer Olympics will be held in Bejing next year. Thanks for the heads up, Ann.
