This program funds fellowships through institutions of higher education (IHEs) to faculty members who propose to conduct research abroad in modern foreign languages and area studies to improve their skills in languages and their knowledge of the culture and people of these countries. Funds support, travel expenses to and from the residence of the fellow and the country or countries of research; a maintenance stipend for the fellow related to his or her academic year salary; and an allowance for research-related expenses overseas such as books and photocopying, tuition, affiliation fees, local travel, and other incidental expenses. This program provides grants to institutions of higher education to fund faculty to maintain and improve their area studies and language skills by conducting research abroad for periods of three to 12 months.
