Did you know that there is a Department of Education grant that provides overseas training, research, and curriculum development experiences for U.S. teachers, faculty, and students?


The International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) office at the U.S. Department of Education is pleased to announce the opening of the competition for the fiscal year 2020 Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad (GPA) Program.


The GPA Program provides grants to institutions and private, nonprofit educational entities that organize programs for K–12 teachers, college students, and faculty to engage in short-term or long-term overseas projects focused on training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies. GPA short-term projects include seminars, curriculum development, and group research or study. GPA long-term projects support advanced intensive overseas programs that focus on languages, the humanities, or social sciences.


IFLE expects to make 25 new awards totaling approximately $2.7 million under the FY 2020 GPA competition. The application is now available at www.grants.gov. The deadline to submit an application is Feb. 18, 2020.


Please refer to the official Federal Register notice for detailed information about the FY 2020 competition.
