THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE

ANNOUNCES AN EXCEPTIONAL INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL GRANT OPPORTUNITY
The 2010 Educational Seminars

Educational Seminars, formerly referred to as Fulbright Teacher Exchange Programs, are sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), U.S. Department of State. These programs provide unique opportunities for qualified U.S. and international teachers and administrators to participate in three to six week work-shadow and observational study programs. Educational Seminars also provide educators with the opportunity to learn about educational systems of other countries and participate on topic focused seminars through a wide array of programs. The program countries include Argentina, Brazil, Greece, India, Italy, Jordan, Mexico, Thailand, Uruguay* and the United States. Through nation-wide competitions, approximately 80 U.S. teachers and principals are selected each year to participate in 2-3 week exchange programs in the host countries. Additionally, the program will bring approximately 120 international teachers and principals for 2-3 week programs to be hosted by schools across the U.S.

All travel and program expenses are supported by U.S. Department of State and administered by American Councils for International Education. The deadline for all applications* is January 4, 2010.
