Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program
Application for Summer 2021 Seminars NOW OPEN!
Deadline to apply: December 18, 2020
The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program provides U.S. educators in the social sciences and humanities with opportunities to participate in short-term seminars abroad to improve their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries. Each thematic seminar features educational lectures and interactive, cultural activities specifically designed for K-16 educators, including visits to local schools and organizations and meetings with education administrators, government officials, policymakers, teachers, and students. Participants draw on their experiences during the program to create new or to enhance cross-cultural curricula for use in their U.S. classrooms and school systems.
In 2021, summer programs will be offered in Iceland, Morocco, and Mexico. Each seminar will have 16 participants. The program covers airfare, room and board, and program costs. Teacher participants are responsible for a cost-share of $650.
• Elementary (grades K-8) – Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice: An Exploration of a Small State in the High North
• Secondary (grades 9-12) – Education in Morocco: An Evolving Landscape
• Postsecondary – The Third Root: Exploring African Heritage in Mexico
