The Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program for 2012, part of the larger Fulbright-Hays Programs, is accepting applications until April 23, 2012. This program “provides grants to support overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies for teachers, students, and faculty engaged in a common endeavor.”
The estimated available funds for this program are $2,990,000. The estimated range of awards is $50,000–$125,000 for short-term projects and $50,000–$375,000 for long-term projects. Read the full program announcement here.
You may remember that we appealed to readers last October to contact Congress about saving the Fulbright-Hays Programs from budget cuts. While the Fulbright-Hays Programs weren’t eliminated (like the Teaching American History Grants), they were reduced, from $75.7 million to $74.1 million.
