PLATTSBURGH - The president of Plattsburgh State University and the executive director of the Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program recently signed an agreement, under which a noted scholar will take up residence at the university for two to six weeks each year. The visiting scholars will be expected to gives lectures and teach a one-credit course during their time at the school.
Fulbright Canada will accept applications and oversee the peer review and selection process. A minimum of five months before the beginning of the semester a scholar is scheduled to arrive, a recommended applicant list will be submitted to PlattsburghState's Center for the Study of Canada. Nominees will be selected from this list.
The agreement will remain in effect for three years after the first scholar in residence is scheduled to arrive in 2012.
