Purpose of Program:
The purpose of the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad (GPA) Program is to promote, improve, and develop modern foreign languages and area studies at varying levels of education.
The program provides opportunities for faculty, teachers, and undergraduate and graduate students to conduct individual and group projects overseas to carry out research and study in the fields of modern foreign languages and area studies.
This competition will support both Fulbright-Hays GPA short-term projects (GPA short-term projects) and Fulbright-Hays GPA long-term projects (GPA long-term projects).
There are three types of GPA short-term projects:
(1) Short-term seminar projects of four to six weeks in length designed to increase the linguistic or cultural competency of U. S. students and educators by focusing on a particular aspect of area study, such as the culture of an area or country of study (34 CFR 66 4. 11); (2) curriculum development projects of four to eight weeks in length that provide participants an opportunity to acquire resource materials for curriculum development in modern foreign language and area studies for use and dissemination in the United States (34 CFR 66 4. 12); and (3) group research or study projects of three to twelve months in duration designed to give participants the opportunity to undertake research or study in a foreign country (34 CFR 66 4. 13).
GPA long-term projects are advanced overseas intensive language projects that may be carried out during a full year, an academic year, a semester, a trimester, a quarter, or a summer.
GPA long-term projects are designed to take advantage of the opportunities in the foreign country that are not present in the United States when providing intensive advanced foreign language training.
Only participants who have successfully completed at least two academic years of training in the language to be studied are eligible for language training under this program.
In addition, the language to be studied must be indigenous to the host country and maximum use must be made of local institutions and personnel (34 CFR 66 4. 14).
Applicants may submit only one application under this notice and must identify whether they are applying for a short-term project or a long-term project.
