2018 FULBRIGHT-HAYS SEMINARS ABROAD PROGRAM

APPLICATION DEADLINE: FEB 2, 2018

The program provides short-term study and travel seminars abroad for U.S. educators in the social sciences and humanities for the purpose of improving their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries. Support is generally made available through interagency agreements. The Department of Education transfers funds through the State Department to Fulbright commissions in various countries to pay the costs associated with administering seminars. This partnership allows the program to use the services and expertise of binational organizations to plan and conduct seminars for U.S. educators.

In 2018, summer programs will be offered in:

  • Elementary/Middle (Grades K-8) Seminar: Exploring Cultural and Social Diversities in India
  • Secondary (Grades 9-12) Seminar: Examining the Impact of Ecuador’s History, Biodiversity, and Cultural Diversity
  • Postsecondary Seminar: Exploring Contemporary United States – Poland Relations.

A total of 48 awards are available (sixteen per program). The program covers airfare, room and board, and program costs. Teacher participants are responsible for a cost-share of $600. For more information, visit here.
