These summer programs 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. There are different seminars for elementary and middle school teachers, secondary teachers, and postsecondary teachers. All seminars include RT airfare, room and board, and other trip-related expenses. Teachers with little or no travel experience are encouraged to apply and enhance their curriculum through direct experience. Trips last 1 month and can be in non-western countries around the world.
