The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program (SA) 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. In 2021, summer seminars will be offered in Iceland, Morocco, and Mexico.
Each thematic seminar features educational lectures and interactive, cultural activities specifically designed for elementary, secondary, and postsecondary 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.
Sixteen educators participate in each seminar. The SA program covers airfare, room and board, and program costs. Teacher participants are responsible for a cost-share of $650.
Please note that seminar dates could be postponed until the summer of 2022 due to international travel restrictions that may be enacted in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
