Professional Development Opportunity: Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program
Submitted by Edmund Graham on December 2, 2016 - 1:17pm
The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program provides opportunities for overseas experience. The program is open to educators and administrators with responsibilities for curriculum development in fields related to humanities, languages, and area studies. Topics and host countries of the seminars vary from year to year. All seminars are in non-Western European countries. Seminars are designed to provide a broad and introductory cultural orientation to a particular country or countries. The program is geared towards those educators with little or no experience in the host country(ies) who demonstrate the need to develop and enhance their curriculum through short-term study and travel abroad.
The following seminars will be offered in FY 2017:
- Elementary/Middle (Grades K-8) Seminar: Exploring the Diverse Culture and History of Thailand
- Secondary (Grades 9-12) Seminar: Bulgaria in the Context of Migration and Challenges to European Cohesion
- Postsecondary Seminar: The Construction of Chilean Identity: Past and Present Contexts
Terms of the award include: (1) round-trip economy airfare; (2) room and board; (3) fees; and (4) program-related travel within the host country(ies). Participants are responsible for a cost share, usually $600.00 (to defray the costs of the pre-departure orientation), plus travel insurance, inoculations required by the country (if applicable), personal passport and visa costs
For those interested in this opportunity there will be a webinar held at 2:00pm ET on December 5, 2016, for technical assistance in preparing your Seminars Abroad application.
