2023 Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program

The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad program provides U.S. educators in the arts, 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 2023, summer seminars will be offered in JordanMexico, and a joint seminar in Argentina and Brazil.

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 existing cross-cultural curricula for use in their U.S. classrooms and school systems. Sixteen educators participate in each seminar. The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad program covers airfare, room and board, and program costs. Participants are responsible for a seminar cost-share of $750.

Please note that seminars are contingent on congressional funding. Also please be advised that international travel dates could be postponed or cancelled due to unexpected COVID or other viral breakouts.
