Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching Program

The Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching Program provides opportunities to primary and secondary school teachers as well as individuals involved in the training and support of teachers at these levels to study in an Indian research center or university. During the program, Fulbright Distinguished Teachers work towards the completion of an inquiry project of their own design. They also enroll in advanced undergraduate or graduate level classes, team-teach in local schools and/or conduct seminars or workshops for Indian teachers, and engage in other teaching related activities. Upon returning home, teachers will be expected to share knowledge and experience gained on the program with teachers and students in their home schools and with their communities.

Duration: 3-6 months

Eligibility: Current full-time primary through secondary level teachers, guidance counselors, curriculum specialists, curriculum heads, Talented and Gifted coordinators, Special Education coordinators, media specialists/librarians, and other types of educators are eligible to apply, as long as they spend at least 50% of their time directly working with students. Alumni of other Fulbright Teacher Exchange Programs are also eligible to apply. School administrators are not eligible.
