The following programs are available to U.S. Scholars in Uruguay
Conduct a professional project, research or do a combination of teaching and research (ideally 20% teaching and 80% research, but the ratio is flexible depending on the agreement between the Scholar and Host Institution).
Research, Teaching, Teaching/Research, and Professional Projects are welcomed. Collaborative work with local scholars is desirable. The teaching to research ratio for the combination (teaching/research) award should be 50:50, though this can be adjusted depending on the host institution preferences/needs.
