The Advertising Educational Foundation invites you to apply to the Visiting Professor Program Application Deadline: January 31, 2013 Background The VPP is a two-week fellowship for professors of advertising, marketing, communications and the liberal arts. In 2012, 18 professors were hosted by advertising agencies in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and Seattle. Whether a professor is placed with an agency, a marketing or media company depends upon his/her area of expertise. The number of placements in the VPP is contingent upon the number of companies willing to host a professor. Preference is given to professors with little or no industry experience and to those who have not already participated in the program. Note: Program is only offered to professors teaching in the United States. Objective: To expose professors to the day-to-day operations of an advertising agency, marketing or media company; and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between academia and industry. The VPP gives professors a greater understanding of and appreciation for the industry while host companies have an opportunity to develop closer ties to academia. Components: An orientation is followed by individual fellowships. While at the host company, each professor offers a Lunchtime Talk on his/her area of expertise and how it relates to advertising. Note: With the professor’s permission, the talk may be videotaped for streaming on 2013 VPP: June 3-15 Professors chosen by the VPP Selection Committee will be placed with host companies in Chicago, New York City and other major cities. Apply only if your academic and personal responsibilities allow you to participate for the full two weeks. Notification: April 2013 Those selected to participate in the program AEF recommends a meeting between the visiting professor and host company to discuss mutual objectives of the program. Expenses: Host companies pay housing and per diem. Professors pay for travel to /from the host city, as well as out-of-pocket expenses. Application: Visit the On-Campus section on to apply and submit your CV and statement. Letter of recommendation (on school letterhead) must be mailed and postmarked by January 31, 2013.
