Fulbright-Hays Seminars and Group Projects Abroad
Since 2004, LLILAS has worked with the Fulbright-Hays educator programs in the U.S. Department of Education. Two programs bring U.S. educators abroad for short-term summer study programs and related projects. Both programs require participants to create country-specific curriculum units that are complete and ready-to-use in K–16 classrooms. LLILAS edits and disseminates the curriculum units from all of the programs we have facilitated over the years; these are free and available for download from this site.
Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad (SA) provide short-term study and travel seminars abroad for U.S. educators in the social sciences and humanities for the purpose of improving their understanding and knowledge of the peoples and cultures of other countries. LLILAS organized the pre-departure orientation and now hosts the curriculum units developed by several SA programs.

Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad (GPA) provide grants to educational institutions 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. LLILAS has organized three seminars and curriculum development projects through the GPA program: Brazil in 2004 and 2010, and Mexico in 2006.
