Общество Сельских Социологов предлагает программу месячной стажировки в

The Rural Sociological Society (RSS), in collaboration with the
American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) invites
Newly Independent State (NIS) social scientists to apply for a
one-month Fellowship program to be held in Washington D.C. and a host
American institution.

RSS is inviting applications and nominations of social scientists
from NIS countries (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Armenia,
Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakstan, Kyrgystan, Tadjikistan, Turmenistan,
Uzbekistan) to participate in this program.

The program is funded by a grant from the U.S. National Science
Foundation. It allows representatives from scientific associations in
NIS countries to come to the United States for four weeks to see how
such associations are run in the United States and to share
information on how associations in NIS countries are organized.

The program runs for four weeks beginning the first week in
September. The RSS invites applications to participate in this
program. Travel, lodging, and per diem would be provided by AAAS.
The first two weeks would be spent in an orientation program with US
scientists and other NIS society representatives. This program
introduces the attendees to how science is organized in the US. The
second two weeks would be spent at AAAS, RSS, and a host institution
learning about RSS operations, publications, and other issues.

Applicants should send a letter of interest, a resume or curriculum
vita with their professional background information, and two
reference letters by April 1, 1999. The application letter should
outline how the applicant will be positioned to contribute to the
development of one or more social science associations in the home
country. The letter also should identify previous institutional
contacts or preferences for contact for the additional two weeks of
their U.S. visit. Such contacts should have as their focus some
previous or current RSS President or society officer. The Fellow
without such contacts will be linked to an RSS institution and

Applications will be received and reviewed by the RSS Liaison
Committee to the AAAS and the RSS President, and a recommendation
forwarded to AAAS for final selection of the Program Fellow.
