About the Short-Term Program

Through the Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Short-Term Program, U.S. K-12 teachers and educators can apply for grants to engage in collaborative projects for approximately 2-6 weeks abroad, with a preference for 3 or more weeks. Participants consult with and support schools, non-profit organizations, teacher training institutions, and other educational organizations abroad. This short-term program is offered in addition to the longer program, which is for a period of three to six months. 

The grant award provides funding for program expenses while abroad, including travel costs, lodging, meals, local transportation, and related expenses. These grants give U.S. educators flexibility to participate in the Fulbright Program while meeting their teaching and professional commitments. 

Grants for 2016 were available in Botswana, India, Mexico, and Vietnam. Click here to see more information on program opportunities for 2016. 

Grants for 2017-2018 are still being determined. We anticipate that the application for next year will be available in fall 2016.
