Group Project Abroad to China

The Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program provides grants to support overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies for teachers, students, and faculty engaged in a common endeavor. Projects may include short-term seminars, curriculum development, group research or study, or advanced intensive language programs.


Projects must focus on the humanities, social sciences and languages, and must focus on one of the following areas: Africa, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Western Hemisphere, East Central Europe and Eurasia, and Near East. Applications that propose projects focused on Canada or Western Europe will not be funded.


The FY 2016 Group Projects Abroad Program will hold a competition for short-term (short-term seminars, curriculum development teams, and group research or study projects) and long-term projects (advanced overseas intensive language projects).


Read these first-hand accounts from the GPA Program:

“It’s important that we’re able to show our students other cultures in order for them to empathize and have more of a worldly view. African culture is already in the standard curriculum, but we’re going to be able to go deeper with it and show our kids through relics and stories and personal experience.”

- Participant of the 2015 Group Project Abroad to Ghana, Savannah State University

“It gives me a great sense of accomplishment. I think you can’t get that unless you experience a place or a culture. Not just a picture of it.

- Participant of the 2014 Group Project Abroad to the Philippines, Northern Illinois University

“Teachers need to be afforded the chance to experience life in countries from which their students hail. When teachers are familiar with a student’s background, they are able to provide culturally relevant instruction.”

-St. John's University Education professor and organizer of the university's 2014 Group Project to India
