The Fulbright TGC application is now live for U.S. K-12 educators

The Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms Program is a yearlong professional learning opportunity and short-term exchange for elementary, middle, and high school educators from the United States to develop skills to prepare students for a competitive global economy. Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms equips educators to bring an international perspective to their schools through targeted training, experience abroad, and global collaboration.
Online Global Education Course
The online global education course combines simultaneous and self-paced coursework during the fall semester. Fellows should be prepared for a thoughtful, content-rich, and rigorous experience with many opportunities built in for practical application and collaboration. The graduate-level course runs for 10 weeks, with multiple assignments due each week. Fellows have the opportunity to earn continuing education units or graduate credits for the course.
Washington, D.C. Symposium
Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms fellows gather for two days in January in Washington, D.C., for an in-person professional learning workshop to build networks, collaborate, and develop strategies to enhance global learning. 
International Field Experience
In the spring or summer, Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms fellows travel for two to three weeks. This international field experience provides fellows with an opportunity to experience another country’s history, education system, and culture. Fellows begin with group instruction on these topics, school visits, and cultural excursions. Fellows then travel in pairs or trios to communities around the country, where they have the opportunity to observe classrooms, interact with administrators, and teach or co-teach their own lessons with international educators.
Global Education Guide
During the program, Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms fellows create a global education guide that serves as a resource for their local community to build global awareness and mutual understanding. Submitted as a final capstone project, this guide serves as a tool for sharing the fellows’ experiences with communities of educators, facilitating professional learning workshops, and engaging students and members of the community with the Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms experience.
