The following email was recently circulated. People interested in this opportunity should contact the Fulbright Scholars program directly; We Can Do is unable to assist with inquiries.

I don’t recall all the details, but I believe that some past Fulbright awards have gone to people involved with disability issues.

Dear Colleague:

The Fulbright Scholar program is offering over 800 awards for lecturing, research or combined lecturing/research in over 130 countries around the world during the 2009-2010 academic year. In addition, many country programs include “All Disciplines” awards open to specialists in any field. You can find details on the new awards, check eligibility guidelines, and download materials at www.cies.org.

The deadline for the traditional Fulbright Scholar program worldwide is August 1, 2008.

Contact information for staff working on particular countries and awards is available both within the award description and at our web site at http://www.cies.org/amstaff.htm. My colleagues welcome the opportunity to speak with you about awards in their countries. Please get in touch with me if I can answer any other questions for you.

Thank you,

Andy Riess, Ph.D.
Senior Program Officer for Recruitment
Council for International Exchange of Scholars

I have enjoyed visiting your site so far because of the rich information the site is noted for. Could you provide me with resource materials on ‘Safety measures for Disabled ones in the workplace’especially as it relates to employers of labour in developing countries. Keep up your good work!

Please, my comment is actually for ‘We Can Do’site generally not for the ‘Lecturing …’ component. I am sending this comment from Nigeria. Thanks

Joseph Kinanee: Most of what I know in relation to people with disabilities in developing countries and human rights or international development either is up at We Can Do somewhere or should eventually be posted here. Right now I’m not specifically aware of resource materials on the topic you’re interested in, but if I ever find something I’ll try to post it here.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
