Call for Volunteers and Grant Applicants, Fulbright in the Classroom, Department of State, Washington, DC. Deadline: May 1, 2021.
For those who have been affiliated with the Fulbright Program, there is an opportunity to promote international understanding by sharing your Fulbright experiences with K-through-College students through Fulbright in the Classroom. All Fulbrighters are welcome to participate, especially recently returning students and ETAs, and visiting grantees. By participating in Fulbright in the Classroom, you can bring a personal perspective on the country you visited or share information about your home country. Please note that you must be a member of the Fulbright Association to participate in FIC or to apply for the grant.
You may participate as (1) a volunteer in your own area, and/or (2) apply for a $750 Fulbright Classroom Grant to reach out digitally to under-represented communities nationwide. Fulbright in the Classroom is primarily an education outreach program, but it will also raise the profile of the Fulbright Program. The goal is to benefit especially communities who are not fully represented in the Program by inspiring future applicants. There is a webinar on March 18 to learn more about the grant and its application.
NOTE: Fulbrighters are also invited to participate in the 75th Anniversary classroom program administered by the State Department (only for the year 2021). Click here to register.
