Kamal Fatehi‚ Chair and Professor‚ Managment & Entrepreneurship at Kennesaw State University‚ has received a Fulbright Senior Specialists grant in Business Administration at International Academy of Business.

The Fulbright Senior Specialists Program offers two− to six−week grants to leading U.S. academics and professionals to support curricular and faculty development and institutional planning at academic institutions in 140 countries around the world.

Created to complement the traditional Fulbright Scholar Program which was started in 1946‚ the Senior Specialists Program aims at increasing the number of faculty and professionals who have the opportunity to go abroad on a Fulbright.

The Fulbright Scholar Program is sponsored by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and managed by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars. The program’s purpose is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

“The traditional Fulbright Scholar Program offers grants ranging from two months to an academic year‚ and some academics and professionals find it difficult to be away overseas for that length of time‚” states Patti McGill Peterson‚ executive director of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars‚ the organization that manages the Fulbright Scholar Program. “The new Senior Specialists Program offers them another option.”

Grantees also undertake new activities‚ ranging from conducting teacher training and developing and assessing curricula or educational materials to leading seminars or workshops or conducting needs assessments.
