“Participation has opened my eyes to the cultural and educational similarities and differences of our countries. This has been one of the best professional development opportunities I have had in my 25 plus year career.” - 2010 Educational Seminars Participant
The Educational Seminars program is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and is implemented by American Councils for International Education. Program funding covers all costs and international travel takes place in the summer. U.S. school teachers and administrators are invited to apply for short-term exchanges in Argentina, Brazil, Greece, India, Italy, Thailand, and Uruguay. While in the host country, the educators will exchange best practices, network with educational leaders, and/or develop joint classroom projects and school partnerships.
The deadline for the Uruguay teacher exchange program is September 12, 2011. Applications for other programs will be available in October 2011.
