Leif J. Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship: Applications due Nov. 18

Applications are now open for the Leif J. Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship for Summer 2017 and Fall 2017. The Leif J. Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship is a revision of Webster’s in-network faculty mobility program.

This program aligns with Webster’s strategic theme of “Global Innovation Through Inclusive Leadership” by providing the opportunity for Webster University faculty members to travel to teach at one of the following Webster international campuses: Athens, Geneva, Leiden, Vienna, Accra, Cha-am/Bangkok, St. Louis (main campus and Gateway campus). 

The fellowship funds travel, housing and some incidental costs. Both full-time and adjunct faculty are eligible to apply. Full-time faculty must have completed at least one academic year at Webster to be eligible. Adjunct faculty must have taught at least six courses at Webster to be eligible.

The submission deadline for Summer 2017 and Fall 2017 applications is Friday, Nov. 18, 2016. Applications for Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 will open in January.
