The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program provides opportunities for overseas experience to individual U.S. K-14 pre-teachers, teachers and administrators with responsibilities for curriculum development in fields related to humanities, languages and area studies. Topics and host countries of the seminars vary from year to year. All seminars are in non-Western European countries and are designed to provide a broad and introductory cultural orientation to a particular country or countries. The program is geared towards those educators with little or no experience in the host country(ies) who demonstrate the need to develop and enhance their curriculum through short-term study and travel abroad.

The Fulbright-Hays Program is funded by a Congressional appropriation to the U.S. Department of Education, which manages the awards in the Office of International and Foreign Language Education.

There are other types of Fulbright-Hays programs supporting research and training efforts overseas, which focus on non-Western foreign languages and area studies. For more information, please visit the Fulbright-Hays website.
