SAI offers the Faculty Fellows Program as a benefit to SAI affiliation. This program, open to faculty of affiliated institutions, offers faculty the opportunity to broaden their teaching and scholarship activities through a funded month in Italy. The purpose of the Faculty Fellows Program is to foster a deeper connection between faculty from affiliate schools and Italian institutions and to provide opportunities to faculty for continuing their research and studies. The Faculty Fellow may serve as an occasional guest lecturer during the Fellowship.
No knowledge of Italian language is required. The award includes international air travel, and a private studio or one bedroom apartment accommodation for one month (four consecutive weeks) in Florence or Rome. Faculty who wish to have family or friends accompany them may be subject to an additional housing fee.
