International Center for Arid and Semi-Arid Land Studies
The International Center for Arid and Semiarid Land Studies (ICASALS) at Texas Tech University was created in 1966 to promote the university's special mission of the interdisciplinary study of arid and semiarid environments and the human relationship to these environments from an international perspective. The purpose of ICASALS is to stimulate, coordinate and implement teaching, research, and public service activities concerning all aspects of the world's arid and semiarid regions, their people and their problems.
The International Center for Arid and Semiarid Land Studies (ICASALS) and the Office of International Affairs announce the start of a new program to host foreign Fulbright Scholars at Texas Tech University campus interested in the study and research of the several aspects involving Arid and Semiarid landscapes.
Each year roughly 850 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing in the United States. Individual grants are available to scholars from over 100 countries. Individuals who meet the eligibility requirements apply for grants through the Fulbright commission/foundation or public affairs section of the U.S. embassy in their home countries. After a thorough selection process in the home country, final approval for awards is issued by the presidentially appointed Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FSB) in the United States. Exchanges range in length from three to twelve months.
Individuals interested in participating of this opportunity at Texas Tech University, please contact Dr. Jorge Salazar-Bravo by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (806.834.3718).
