Other Opportunities

Teach Abroad with USAC

UC faculty are eligible to teach abroad through the University Study Abroad Consortium (USAC), of which UC is a member. USAC has 39 programs in 24 locations throughout the world, including Western Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. UC faculty may apply to teach in one of the programs during the summer, or for a semester during the academic year. USAC Visiting Professors are compensated for their teaching and round trip airfare is covered by USAC. Visiting Professorship applications are typically due to UC International Programs in early February for the following academic year (i.e. in February 2012 for teaching during summer 2013, or during the 2013-14 academic year).

Dependents and spouses who accompany the Visiting Professor are eligible for a discount from USAC. Applications are available in early Fall each year, and are sent via the UC International listserv.  Contact global@uc.edu for more information.

Fulbright Grants

The Fulbright Program was established in 1946, at the end of World War II, to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries, through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. Its primary source of funding is an annual appropriation made by the United States Department of State.

There are a variety of categories of Fulbright grants for faculty and staff:

  • Core Fulbright Scholar Program
  • Fulbright Specialist Program
  • Fulbright New Century Scholars Program
  • Fulbright Distinguished Chairs Program
  • German Studies Seminar
