IIE Networker - Fall 2005 - 11

Up Front Victor J. Goldberg IIE Prize for Peace in the Middle East At a reception at the American Center in Jerusalem in June, U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer (left) presented the inaugural Victor J. Goldberg IIE Prize for Peace in the Middle East to Professors Sami Adwan (center) and Dan Bar-On, co-directors of Peace Research Institute in the Middle East (PRIME), for their pioneering work in engaging Israeli and Palestinian teachers and teenagers in changing entrenched and polarizing attitudes on both sides of the region’s conflict. The Institute of International Education (IIE) created the Goldberg IIE Prize to recognize outstanding work being conducted jointly by two individuals, one Arab and one Israeli, working “Application Deadlines” continued from page 9 together to advance the cause of peace in the Middle East, by presenting them with an award of $10,000. A prestigious international committee judged the shared history project, “Learning Each Other’s Historical Narrative,” to be most successful in bringing people together and breaking down the barriers of hatred toward “the other.” Nominations for the 2006 Goldberg IIE Prize are due on February 1, 2006 (see www.iie.org/goldbergprize). Freeman-ASIA Award Program: Awards for Study in Asia Application deadline for spring 2006 awards: October 21, 2005 The primary goal of the Freeman-ASIA Award Program, an IIE-administered program generously supported by the Freeman Foundation, is to increase the number of American undergraduates to study abroad in East and Southeast Asia, by providing students with the information and financial assistance they will need. Awardees will be expected to share their experiences with their home campus, to encourage study abroad by others, and to spread understanding of Asia in their home communities. For more information, please go to www.iie.org/freeman-asia. world critical to the future security of our nation, in exchange for a commitment to seek work in the federal government. As students of other cultures and languages, NSEP scholars begin to acquire the international competence needed to communicate effectively across borders, to understand other perspectives, and to analyze increasingly fluid economic and political realities. For more information, including applications, please go to www.iie.org/nsep or contact your NSEP campus representative or the NSEP office at 800-618-NSEP or nsep@iie.org. Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA) The FLTA Program aims to strengthen foreign language instruction at colleges and universities throughout the United States and to provide young student teachers with the opportunity to refine their teaching skills while gaining overseas experience. At the same time, the program enables U.S. educational institutions to enhance and build their foreign language teaching capabilities by engaging native language informants from over 40 countries in the instruction of over 25 languages. In addition to teaching their languages, FLTAs typically live in language dorms and facilitate language clubs or language tables. U.S. embassies, Fulbright commissions and binational centers recruit and select FLTAs in their home countries. Participating institutions then receive the dossiers of several candidates that match their requirements and select the FLTA they believe most appropriate for their campus. FLTAs can be assigned diverse duties at their host institutions and are not limited to working exclusively in a formal classroom setting. Each institution is free to tailor the program to meet their unique needs. The ability of the teaching assistants to engage their students informally is quite often the key to successful language learning. Institutions often program extracurricular activities into the teaching assistant’s work schedules such as sponsoring community/university lectures, hosting social events, and leading conversation groups. Fulbright English Teaching Opportunities Application deadline: October 21, 2005 Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright English Teaching Program provides opportunities for U.S. students to teach English language and conversation classes are available in the following countries: Andorra, Argentina, B e l g i u m / L u xe m b o u r g , Bosnia/Herzegovina, Brazil, Chile, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Romania, Russia, Slovak Republic, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. Specific grant details and the number of available teaching opportunities vary by country.
