What do John Hope Franklin, Paul Samuelson, Linus Pauling, and Jonathan Franzen have in common? Besides having last names that begin with a male first name, they were Fulbright Scholars who have gone on to acheive greatness in their respective fields. John Hope Franklin received a Presidential Medal of Freedom (America’s highest civilian honor), Paul Samuelson is a Nobel Laureate in Economics, Linus Pauling received the Nobel Prize for his work in Chemistry, and Jonathan Franzen is a novelist who just so happens to have an awesome last name.
The Fulbright Program aims to promote peace and understanding through educational exchange. It was created in the aftermath of World War II through the efforts of Senator J. William Fulbright, and today, is considered to be one of the most prestigious academic awards world-wide. In fact, more Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes than those of any other academic program.
Institute of International Education, aka IIE, manages the Fulbright Program, along with 250 other programs worldwide, and serves over 20,000 people from 175 nations each year.
An independent non-profit founded in 1919, IIE is among the world’s largest and most experienced international education and training organizations. Their goal is to strengthen and link institutions of education across the globe, as well as to rescue threatened scholars and promote academic freedom.
And here is the great news, there are a few entry-level job openings available. One such job caught our attention immediately, IIE is hiring a Program Associate (dead link removed) for their Washington D.C. office to assist in the administration of the Fulbright Scholar Program for the Middle Eastern/North African world region. In this position, you would be responsible for tasks such as coordinating grant activities for applicants in the region, keeping abreast of foreign academic policy, and assembling and distributing pertinent program information to applicants, sponsors, etc.
To apply for this job, or one of the other Program Associate jobs, IIE asks that you send a resume and cover letter to Brandon Gee, whose contact info can be found in the link above.
