2017 Fullbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program

The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program provides short-term summer seminars abroad for U.S. educators in the social sciences and humanities to improve their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries. Each seminar features educational lectures and activities specifically designed for the group, including visits to local schools and organizations, meetings with teachers and students, and visits to cultural sites. Participants draw on their experiences during the program to create new, cross-cultural curricula for their classrooms and school systems back in the U.S. In 2017, three summer programs will be offered to Bulgaria, Chile, and Thailand. A total of 48 awards are available (sixteen per program) at the elementary and middle school, high school, and postsecondary educator levels. The program covers airfare, room and board, and program costs. Teacher participants are responsible for a cost-share of $600. (Deadline December 28)
