Thirty-one American scholars have been selected to receive 1983-84 Fulbright awards to lecture or conduct advanced research in education.

The award recipients were among 746 scholars from 37 academic fields who were recently chosen to hold appointments in 100 countries.

The senior-scholar segment of the Fulbright program is funded and administered by the United States Information Agency in cooperation with the Council for International Exchange of Scholars.

Established by legislation introduced in 1946 by Senator J. William Fulbright and "re-emphasized" by Congress under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, the Fulbright program is designed to increase "mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries."

The senior Fulbright scholars were selected in a national competition; they were judged on the basis of written proposals and professional qualifications.

To be eligible for lecture and research grants, applicants must be U.S. citizens. Lecturers must have a postdoctoral college or university teaching experience at the level and in the field of lectureship sought, and researchers must have a doctorate or comparable professional qualifications at the time of application. In some cases, proficiency in the language of the country to be visited is required.

For the 1984-85 senior scholar program, general competition for Australia, New Zealand, and Latin American countries closes June 15. For countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, competition closes Sept. 15.

Applications for the 1984-85 program are available on college campuses at the office of the graduate dean, international-programs director, or chief academic adviser. If not available on campus, applications and further information can be obtained from cies, 11 Dupont Circle, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036.
