The Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Short-Term Program is designed for K–12 educators from the United States to work with an educational institution in a participating country to address specific need(s) of that country. Host institutions in participating countries work with the U.S. Embassies and Fulbright Commissions to develop these educational projects.
Upon arrival in the host country, after receiving a country-specific orientation and briefing, participants are introduced to their host institution and community and begin working immediately to fulfill the needs of the project. Project activities may include developing trainings, writing curricula, supporting pre-service or in-service educators, and collaborating with university faculty to update teacher training processes and curricula.
Participants live and work in their host countries for two to six weeks. 2021-2022 Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Short-Term Program projects will take place between March – December 2022. Project descriptions will be made publicly available soon and will include more specific information related to the expectations of the project, language requirements, if any, and the specific time frame and duration.
