Excellent opportunity for U.S. educators to visit Poland

Excellent opportunity for U.S. educators!

We are happy to inform that Poland joined Ecuador and India as host country for the 2018 Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program.

The Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program provides short-term seminars abroad for U.S. educators in the social sciences and humanities to improve their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries. Each seminar features educational lectures and activities specifically designed for the group, including visits to local schools and organizations, meetings with teachers and students, and visits to cultural sites. Participants draw on their experiences during the program to create new, cross-cultural curricula for their classrooms and school systems back in the U.S.

Polish-U.S. Fulbright Commission prepared seminar aimed for U.S. educators, administrators, librarians, museum educators, and media resource specialists at the postsecondary level. The four-week program will explore the relationship between the United States and Poland and delve into politics, national security, culture, and economics. The participants will have an opportunity to meet experts across different academic fields who will share their knowledge on international relations, specifically concentrating on the United States and Poland. Participants will also travel across Poland to see historical sites as well as fast-growing areas (Warsaw, Cracow, Wroclaw, and Gdansk) to experience the richness of Polish culture and meet outstanding Polish scholars from academic centers. The participants will take part in discussions and cultural events designed to connect specialists from different academic disciplines and allow them to experience the spirit of contemporary Poland.

The closing date for applying is Friday, February 2 at 4:30PM (Washington D.C. timezone). More information can be found here: https://goo.gl/LqjzEs.
