Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad, to be held in Iceland, Morocco, Mexico across June-July or July-August of 2021. Deadline: December 18, 2020.
The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad program supports short-term study opportunities for U.S. educators for the purpose of improving their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries. The program provides opportunities for qualified U.S. educators to participate in short-term seminars abroad mainly on topics in the humanities, social sciences, and arts. For the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 competition, the plan is to offer seminars to Iceland (elementary/secondary teachers, Grades K-8), Morocco (secondary teachers, Grades 9-12), and Mexico (postsecondary educators and administrators).
Educators with limited or no study abroad experience are encouraged to apply. Upon their return, participants are expected to develop and disseminate a curriculum project and to share their broadened knowledge and understanding of the host country(ies) with students, colleagues, civic and professional organizations, and the public in their respective home communities. All seminars are composed of a pre-arranged, structured academic phase and a group travel phase.
Note that it is possible that seminar dates may be delayed due to any restrictions that could be enacted in response to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
