Faculty Handbook for Sabbaticals Abroad.
Klitz, Sally Innis
Practical guidelines to help faculty members plan sabbaticals abroad are presented. It is recommended that plans be begun two years prior to the departure time in order to prepare a proposal if necessary, secure funding, and make housing and schooling arrangements for the family. Specific funding sources are identified, including U.S. federal agencies, private foundations, learned societies, foreign governments, or international organizations. Publications that can provide additional information of funding sources are listed. Notes on writing the proposal and general criteria for interviews for teaching positions and seminars are presented, along with a suggested timetable for securing a grant. Opportunities for participating in a teaching exchange are also listed. The following aspects of the relocation process are covered: the passport, a visa, schooling for dependents, housing arrangements, what to do at home, U.S. taxes, choosing an airplane flight, vaccinations and shots, finances (sending money abroad, changing currency, credit cards), learning about the foreign culture, packing, medical insurance coverage while abroad, medical problems, prescriptions, transportation abroad, customs regulations, and receiving mail overseas. A checklist to aid planning is included. Appended materials include the following: official university bylaws regarding leaves of absence, useful international organizations, visa information and embassy addresses, worldwide climate chart.
