Also Known As: Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program; Fulbright
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.
There are approximately seven to ten seminars annually with fourteen to sixteen participants in each seminar. Due to budget restrictions, this year we will only be able to offer one seminar to China at the K-12 level. Seminars are four to six weeks in duration. All seminars are held in countries outside of Western Europe.
Terms of the award include a round-trip economy airfare, room and board, tuition and fees, and program-related travel within the host country.
