Specific Additional Guidance for Application Form:

Personal Information:

1. 请严格按照护照上的姓名拼音填写,并请注意姓名的正确填写顺序:First Name为名字,Family Name为姓。三个字或三个字以上的名字请勿将名字拆开填写在Middle栏目中, 请将名字全部填写在first name处。入选后所有的文件姓名拼写都将以此为准。

2. 申请表上的出生地(Place of birth)请与护照上的出生地(Place of birth)保持一致, 尽管护照上的出生地一般指的是省份。 大家就填省份的信息即可。因为入境美国时, 富布赖特项目颁发的所有证明您身份的文件,特别是DS2019表的信息必须与护照上的信息一致。

Academic Credentials:

1. Institution Name, 请填写您所在大学的名称, 而不是研究所或学院的名字。

2. List up to three completed degrees; enter your highest degree first

请列出三个已获得的学历,最高学历填写在首位, 比如:Ph.D./MA/BA

3. Most significant professional accomplishments, honors and awards and up to three significant publications (list maximum of five, separated by semicolons; 700 character limit, use Roman characters only) 请列举您最重要的学术成就、所得荣誉、奖项 和3-5个最有影响力的出版物,各项用分号隔开,陈述内容不得超过700个字母并只能使用新罗马体字(Times New Roman),否则系统将无法显示您所填写的内容。

Project Details:

1. Project Title (limit 160 characters) 研究课题题目要集中在您的研究课题的具体活动, 避免太笼统。

2. Brief Summary of project Statement/Rationale:  研究课题摘要不得超过700个词,并只能使用新罗马体字(Times New Roman),请不要使用回车键, 否则系统将无法显示您所填写的内容。

Project Details:

Proposed Program Length and Dates:

富布赖特项目是十个月的交流项目。所以项目长度应该填写10个月。但申请人根据课题需要可以选择12个月作为您的富氏项目期限。无论选择10个月或12个月作为项目期限, 不会影响您的资助金额总额。延长的两个月生活费需要自行承担,项目不提供由延期引起的额外津贴补助。富氏学者每年不得早于九月或晚于同年十二月开始项目。 项目起始日请根据自己的实际需求来填写, 比如可填2016年9月16日等。 但是对于计划带学龄孩子去美国上学的学者,建议选择9月1日作为项目起始日,以便您有足够时间为孩子办理入学手续。您可以在项目开始的前30天入境美国安排家属生活或上学有关的事宜。

Project Details:

Major Academic Discipline

请学者务必从下拉菜单里选择自己的学科领域。

Professional Information:

Professional travel and/or residence abroad during the last five years (list most recent first; time abroad exceeding 3 months) If you have entered the United States on a J-1 or J-2 visa, please list the J category of sponsorship (professor, research, scholar, student, specialist, short-term scholar, etc.) and provide copies of your previous DS-2019

列出过去五年内超过三个月的访学活动和/或国外居住经历 (最近的排在最前面,依次排列)。如果您曾持有J-1 或 J-2交换学者签证入境过美国,请列出您J类签证的赞助种类 (教授, 研究人员,学者,学生,专家,短期学者等),并将您使用过的DS2019表的复印件上传至此。超过5年的访学活动,就不必在此一一列举了。

References:

请将推荐人的信息填写在此。每个申请人有三个推荐人。推荐人可以是来自您所在学校的同一研究领域的同事,但是三位推荐人必须有一位是来自您所在大学之外的同一研究领域的德高望众的学者。如果推荐信是中文请务必翻译成英文并上传至(additional document page 14-20)补充材料处。

Self-assessment of English Proficiency:

英语的熟练程度是评估申请质量的因素之一。在做自我英语评估时,如您选择了Fair or Poor, 应考虑等英语水平提高到至少 Good以上后再申请。

Preferred Host Institution(s):

If you made arrangements for affiliation with a U.S. host institution, provide the following information and attach your letter of invitation in the document upload section later in the application. If you have not made arrangements for affiliation, identify three preferences in order of priority. Be sure to give detailed reasons for each choice, and confirm that these universities offer programs in your field of interest.

建议申请人在填写此项内容前, 先要对您的研究领域的美国的大学和教授做深入的调查研究, 以便能准确填写那些与您的研究计划和研究趣向相符合的美国大学和教授。我们在此强调各位学者务必以自己的研究课题为出发点, 而不是以名校情结为导向。如果在选择学校时只是考虑学校的声誉,而忽视了您的研究方向, 则会对您的申请带来不利的影响。

关于美国接待学校的安置问题的解释: 中国学者既可以自己联系美国的接待学校也可以委托在美国的 ”学者国际交流委员会” (Council for International Exchange of Scholars)简称CIES来帮助安置美国的接待学校。成功入选该项目后,项目管理人员会提供给入选学者机会, 请学者自由选择美国学校的安置方式。无论选择何种方式,都不会影响您的申请结果。

如果是计划自己联系美国的接待院校,您可以在申请阶段就开始联系美国教授,以便早些获得一封美国大学接收函。但是如果您到了提交申请材料的最后期限时还没获得邀请函,也不必紧张。在面试时不要求提供邀请信, 只要能够陈述清楚在申请表上所列举的三所学些的原因。

无论选择CIES还是自己联系美国接待院校,请务必填写完整大学、院系和相关教授的信息。否则将延误您的美国接待学校安置。申请人务必填按照优先顺序将三所(最多只能写三所)感兴趣的美国大学填写在所给出的地方。 如果您在填表时已经收到了美国大学的邀请函, 可以只填写收到邀请函的那所学校, 并将邀请函上传至Embark 系统。


Contact/Family Information

Telephone: 请务必填写手机号码,而不是座机电话以便项目管理人员与您联系

Emergency Contact Information:

Telephone: 请务必填写手机号码。 建议填写一位在美的亲朋好友, 一位在国内的联系人的信息。

Accompanying Dependents: question 30

该项目允许携带家属。 如果您现在无法确定家属去美国的期限,请先填写一个大概的时间段,但家属的其它信息必须准确无误。请只填写配偶和21岁以下未婚孩子的信息。按照项目管理规定父母及兄弟姐妹不能作为富布赖特家属身份前往美国, 而只能以旅游者身份入境美国。 如果家属陪伴学者在美国的时间超过8个月,学者可以享受每月200美元的家属补贴(两人及两人以上为每月350美元) 用于支付家属购买保险的部分费用。家属在美的生活费用自理。家属是美国公民者,请持美国护照入境美国,无需办理签证入境美国。

Alternate Funding:

Please list all non-Fulbright funding you expect to receive during your grant (sabbatical funding or other paid leave from your university, personal savings, etc.). Please list funding amounts in U.S. dollars and attach your supporting documentation/financial support statement in the document upload section. Do you expect to receive sabbatical pay, paid leave of absence or other sources of financial support during your Fulbright grant? 如果申请人填写有学术假薪金或其它资金来源,请务必上传资金来源证明。有无额外资金来源并不影响申请结果。所以建议大家在此填写“NO”。 尽管多数学者在参加富氏项目期间继续领取基本工资,但可忽略不计, 从而可以简化手续免去开证明的麻烦。
