Exchange committee invites applications

The University of Washington – University of Ljubljana Exchange Committee invites applications from UW faculty, other academic personnel, and senior graduate students to visit the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) during the 2012 calendar year. Academic visitors are expected to give lectures, interact with Slovene students, and collaborate with Slovene faculty colleagues in their field of study. The visit must be completed by the end of 2012, and should take place while the University of Ljubljana is in session (spring or fall semesters). The UW Exchange Committee will reimburse UW participants for travel to and from Ljubljana, while the University of Ljubljana will provide room and board. Two visitors, each staying for a period of two weeks, can be supported.

Applicants should submit their CV and a cover letter which explains the academic value and proposed outcomes of the visit and identifies the University of Ljubljana faculty colleagues with whom they will be collaborating. A copy of correspondence with the applicants Ljubljana counterparts, particularly as it outlines the plan of collaboration and gives evidence of the host institutions endorsement of the visit, should be included. UW participants in the program are required to submit a concise report identifying the academic outcomes of their visit and describing prospects for continued collaboration.

Deadline for applications: Monday, Nov. 28

Applications and questions about the program should be addressed to:
