Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad ProgramApplication Deadline: Dec. 18, 2020The 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. In 2021, summer seminars will be offered in Iceland, Morocco, and Mexico. Each seminar features educational lectures and interactive, cultural activities specifically designed for 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 program covers airfare, room and board, and program costs. Teacher participants are responsible for a cost-share of $650. The deadline to apply is Dec. 18, 2020. For more information, please visit:https://www2.ed.gov/programs/iegpssap/applicant.html
