There's still time to consider a Fulbright grant to Sweden!
While the application deadline for most of the Fulbright U.S. Core awards was August 1, 2018, a select number of opportunities remain open for new applications until Wednesday, September 12. The full list of open Core awards can be found in the Catalog of Awards. In the Sweden, the Fulbright program is still accepting applications for the following human rights-focused award:
Fulbright-Lund University Chair in Public International Law
This four- to nine-month award offers affiliation at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law and/or Lund University. The chair will teach at the master's level in human rights, international law, international organizations, civil and political rights, humanitarian law, refugee law, minority and indigenous rights and international labor standards. The chair may also teach human rights training courses in Lund on topics such as civil and political rights, good governance and anti-corruption efforts and human rights of women, and supervise master's students in their thesis research and writing. The Chair may also participate in collaborative research and teach at the Faculty of Law at Lund University.
A letter of invitation should not be sought for this award.
Editor's Note (MD): This is a fantastic position at a vibrant institute that combines top-notch academic research with meaningful programmatic human rights work worldwide. Beyond your own research and writing, there are many opportunities to work with staff in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and elsewhere. To top it off, if you have kids to bring along, Sweden is supremely family-friendly. Don't put it off another year! Or if you are going to put it off, at least share this with someone who can take advantage of the opportunity this year!
