2015 Seminars Abroad Group

Did you know that the U.S. Department of Education provides grants to K-12 and postsecondary educators and administrators to study and travel abroad?

The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program provides short-term seminars abroad for U.S. educators in the social sciences and humanities to improve their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries. The program offers educational lectures and activities specifically designed for the group, including visits to local schools and organizations, meetings with educators and students, visits to cultural sites. Participants draw on their experiences during the program to create new, cross-cultural curricula for their classrooms and school systems back in the U.S. 

In 2016, summer programs will be offered to Peru, India, and Senegal. The program covers airfare, lodging, and program costs. Participants should be prepared to pay a cost-share of up to $600.

3 Options for 2016 Seminars Abroad Program


Here's what participants of the Seminars Abroad Program have to say about their experience:


"Without a doubt the ENTIRE trip was amazing! All of the activities were related to each other and sequenced in a thoughtful way. All activities were meaningful and left a lasting impression."


"Thanks to the inspired and collaborative contributions from my fellow participants, I return with an arsenal of lessons that bring a modest slice of China back home to my students."


"I have always included global studies and world cultures into my curriculum. My experience in China will allow me to introduce to my students pertinent first-hand information. I plan on doing so through the development of curriculum units that will give my students the opportunity to explore artistically, the cultural heritage of China, but more importantly, explore and compare their own culture as well as other cultures with China.”
