I am writing to create and determine interest among the faculty for participating in the Harvard-Koç University Visiting Scholar Program for the Summer of 2010.
The general features of the program are as follows.
Objectives: To support collaboration among Koç and Harvard University faculty; to provide faculty with access to Harvard University’s library and other facilities and an opportunity to participate in workshops and seminars in the area.
Who qualifies: Koç University Faculty with research appointments.
Time frame: 8 to 12 week stays, between the dates of July1 - Sept 15.
Number of Scholarships: 2 - 4 depending on length of stay requested.

You may also stay in another department if you can make the arrangements yourselves.
Faculty responsibilities: Make arrangements with colleagues at Harvard for collaboration. Faculty are also responsible for securing housing and for all their expenses.
