Would you like to be a Fulbright Scholar in China?  It’s not too late.  I just received the following email.

Dear China Fulbright alumni in law:

We are now a little less than a week away from the August 2 deadline for the 2011-12 Fulbright Scholar awards. My recent review of the number of applications in law awards in China–submitted and pending–indicates that for whatever reason there is a significant drop off in the number of applicants in law–both the regular award and the distinguished lectureship.

I am writing to ask your assistance in bringing these opportunities to the attention of potential applicants as quickly as possible. You are probably thinking if there is enough time to submit an application. There is, because if people start their applications by August 2, they have until August 20 to complete them.

To facilitate your helping us with this late recruitment effort, you will find an announcement below that you can send out to list serves, post on a webpage, put on a bulletin board, etc.

Thanks very much for your help.

Best regards,
