Applications are being accepted for the Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program at the U.S. Department of Education (USED), which provides opportunities for qualified educators to participate in short-term seminars abroad – mainly on topics in the social sciences, social studies and the humanities – for the purpose of improving their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries.
These programs will be offered in summer 2018:
- Elementary/middle seminar (grades K-8): Exploring Cultural and Social Diversities in India
- Secondary seminar (grades 9-12): Examining the Impact of Ecuador’s History, Biodiversity and Cultural Diversity
- Postsecondary seminar: Exploring Contemporary United States-Poland Relations
Eligible educators must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with at least three years of full-time teaching or administrative experience at the time of departure and must be educators in the arts, humanities or social sciences or administrators.
Upon their return, participants are expected to develop and disseminate a curriculum project and to share their broadened knowledge and understanding of the host country or countries with students, colleagues, civic and professional organizations and the public in their home communities.
The application deadline is Feb. 2. Visit the USED website for more information.
