Dear Colleague: 

Each year American and foreign teachers, graduate students, researchers, 
university lecturers, mid-career professionals, and secondary students 
participate in programs funded wholly or in part by the United States 
Information Agency. The Agency's Bureau of Educational and cultural Affairs 
operates a number of programs under tne authority of the Mutual Educational 
and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, also known as the Fulbright-Hays Act. 

The principal purpose of the Fulbright Program is to increase mutual 
understanding between the people of the United States and those of other 
countries. The Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program directly assists schools 
and colleges in adding an international dimension to education. U.S. teachers 
at all levels from participating schools exchange positions with teachers from 
cooperating countries, usually for an academic year. Seminar programs are 
also available. 

A variety of academic-year and semester teacher exchange programs and seminars 
will be offered during the 1987-88 competition. If you wish to be considered 
for participation, please complete tne enclosed application. 

The section of this booklet titled "Background Information" explains 
eligibility requirements and describes specific program offerings for 
individual countries. Part II is the actual application and includes detailed 
instructions for its completion. 

Should you have any questions regarding this application, please contact the 
Teacher Exchange Branch, E/ASX, United States Information Agency, 
Washington, DC 20547, or call (202) 485-2555.

PART I: BACKGROUND INFORMATION 



THE FULBRICHT PROGRAM 



The Fulbright Program is authorized by Public Law 87-256, 
the Mutual Educational and Cultural Act of 1 96 1 . The primary 
purpose of this program is to promote mutual understanding 
between the people of the United States and the peoples of 
other countries through educational exchange. 



The Board of Foreign Scholarships (BFS) 

The BFS is composed of twelve educational and public leaders 
appointed by the President of the United States. It establishes 
Fulbright program policy, supervises academic exchanges, 
and approves selection of participating individuals and institu- 
tions. 



The United States Information Agency (USIA) 

USIA's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs is responsi- 
ble for a number of educational exchange programs autho- 
rized by the Fulbright Act. It administers these programs with 
the assistance of binational educational exchange Commis- 
sions and Foundations in more than 40 countries, U.S. Em- 
bassies in more than 50 other countries, and cooperating 
agencies in the United States. 



The Teacher Exchange Branch (E/ASX) 

Each year, the Teacher Exchange Branch publishes announce- 
ments of opportunities and conducts a national competition 
for international teaching positions and seminar awards. Staff 
review applications, arrange exchanges between U.S. and for- 
eign educators, and recommend U.S. candidates for selection 
for seminars and exchanges. The Branch also calls upon the 
services of interviewing committees which do preliminary 
screening of applicants in various parts of the United States. 

While U.S. teachers are abroad and their counterparts are 
teaching in the United States, the Branch continues to main- 
tain contact with program participants, assists them when 
necessary, and, upon the teachers' completion of the year 
abroad, solicits final reports and evaluations of the exchange 
experiences. 



APPLICATION PROCEDURES FOR 
TEACHING POSITIONS ABROAD 



Eligibility Requirements 

Elementary and secondary school teachers, school adminis- 
trators, and college faculty are eligible to apply for positions 
abroad. However, not all categories of applicants are eligible 
for exchange with all countries. 

An applicant must 1 ) be a U.S. citizen at the time application is 
filed; 2) hold at least a bachelor's degree; 3) have a current 
full-time teaching/administrative assignment; 4) be currently 
employed in the appropriate subject field and at the level of the 
position for which application is made; and 5) have three years 
of full-time educational experience. The Country Index con- 



tains information on specific requirements for placement in 
each country. 

Applicants may be required to appear for a personal interview 
before a regional committee at a time to be announced later. 
The applicant may be disqualified from further consideration if 
he or she fails to attend the scheduled interview. 

Evidence of good health and emotional maturity and stability 
is necessary; teachers recommended for exchange will be 
required to have a physical examination at their own expense. 
Final approval of exchange is contingent upon submission by 
the candidate of a satisfactory medical report. 

Teaching couples may apply. However, because of the limited 
number of positions available and, often, the lack of foreign 
candidate pairs with similar qualifications for interchanges, it 
may not be possible to arrange suitable assignments in the 
same locality nor to place both teachers. 

Preference will be given to applicants who have not participat- 
ed previously in the program. However, a teacher may reapply 
3 or more years after completing the first exchange. Excep- 
tions may be made for seminar participants who later apply 
for a teaching position. Previous Fulbright grants in other cat- 
egories or grants under other auspices do not automatically 
disqualify a candidate from consideration for the program. 

Other considerations being equal, veterans will be given pref- 
erence. Geographic distribution of awards is also a factor in 
selection. 

If an applicant is found to be ineligible or non-competitive for 
the country program(s) which he or she has listed, but would 
be eligible or more competitive for a program in another coun- 
try, USIA may consider the applicant for that country instead. 

Notification of Action 

In April, the Teacher Exchange Branch will notify applicants 
recommended for teaching positions abroad of selection or 
non-selection by the Board of Foreign Scholarships. 

Applicants selected for exchange MUST attend pre-departure 
orientation programs of the sponsoring agencies in the United 
States or abroad which may be scheduled in August. There- 
fore, applicants should not make travel/vacation plans for that 
time period. 



Participating Countries 

A number of countries cooperate in offering teacher exchange 
opportunities. USIA cannot guarantee that a particular pro- 
gram will be held in a particular country in a given year. Sub- 
ject to the availability of Federal funds and the cooperation of 
foreign nations, we anticipate having programs in 1 987-88 in 
the countries listed in the Country Index. Details provided in 
the Country Index are subject to change. 



Exchange Arrangements 

A variety of arrangements have been made with participating 
countries for Americans wishing to teach abroad. The majority 
of these teachers will directly exchange positions with foreign 
teachers. A few others will go abroad on a one-way exchange. 
Foreign teachers are screened and recommended by Ful- 
bright Commissions/Foundations or other responsible educa- 



tional authorities abroad. Local U.S. school officials are then 
asked to review and approve the qualifications of foreign 
teachers who are proposed for exchange with U.S. teachers. 



Administrative Approval 

In making application to the Teacher Exchange Program, 
teachers are advised that the official who signs the "Adminis- 
trative Approval for Applicant" form must be the official autho- 
rized to grant a leave of absence and to approve the appropri- 
ate salary arrangements. 



Terms of Award 

The terms of award for each teacher exchange program vary 
from country to country and are described in the Country 
Index. 

A number of country programs provide full or partial transpor- 
tation awards. NO TRANSPORTATION IS PROVIDED FOR DE- 
PENDENTS. Since any costs for dependents' travel are the 
responsibility of the participant, teachers interested in taking 
their families abroad are urged to investigate the cost of trans- 
portation (e.g. charter flights) for their dependents before 
applying. 

Maintenance allowances, when provided, are paid in the cur- 
rency of the host country and are based on the cost of living in 
that country, not on the amount of the grantee's salary in the 
United States. 

Fulbright grants for teaching abroad, whether paid in foreign 
currency or in dollars, are subject to U.S. Federal Income Tax. 
Information regarding the tax provisions applicable to awards 
may be obtained from the Foreign Operations District, Inter- 
nal Revenue Service, 1 325 K Street, N.W., Washington, DC. 
20225. Attention: FOD: 8-1. 



APPLICATION PROCEDURES FOR 
SEMINARS ABROAD 



Eligibility Requirements 

Senior high school teachers (grades 9-12), community and 
junior college faculty, 4-year college/university instructors, 
and assistant professors are eligible to participate in semi- 
nars. Not all categories of applicants, however, are eligible for 
all seminars. 

An applicant must 1 ) be a U.S. citizen at the time the applica- 
tion is filed; 2) hold at least a bachelor's degree; 3) have two 
years of relevant full-time teaching experience; and 4) have 
current full-time employment in the subject area of the semi- 
nar. Application may be made during the second year of full- 
time teaching. Refer to the Country Index for more specific 
information regarding eligibility for each seminar. 

Applicants may be required to appear for a personal interview 
before a regional committee at a time to be announced later. 
The applicant may be disqualified from further consideration if 
he or she fails to attend the scheduled interview. 

Evidence of good health and emotional maturity and stability 
is necessary; candidates recommended for seminars will be 
required to have a medical examination at their own expense. 
Awards are contingent upon submission by the candidate of a 
satisfactory medical report. 

Preference will be given to applicants who have not participat- 



ed previously in the program and who have not visited the 
country of application before. Previous Fulbright grants in 
other categories or grants under other auspices are not neces- 
sarily disqualifying factors. 

Other considerations being equal, veterans will be given pref- 
erence. Geographic distribution of awards is also a factor in 
selection. 



Notification of Action 

The Teacher Exchange Branch will notify seminar applicants in 
April of final selection or non-selection by the Board of Foreign 
Scholarships. 



Participating Countries 



The Teacher Exchange Branch cannot guarantee that a parti- 
cular seminar will be held in a particular country in a given 
year. Subject to the availability of Federal funds and the coop- 
eration of foreign nations, programs are planned in Italy and 
the Netherlands in 1987. Details provided in the Country 
Index are subject to change. 



Administrative Approval 



In making application to a seminar, educators are advised that 
the "Administrative Approval for Applicant" form must be 
signed by the official authorized to approve participation. 



Terms of Award 



The terms of award for seminars vary. Specific information is 
included in the Country Index for seminars in each participat- 
ing country. 

Dependents are not permitted to accompany seminar partici- 
pants. 

Maintenance allowances, when provided, are paid in the cur- 
rency of the host country and are based on the cost of living in 
that country, not on the amount of the grantee's salary in the 
United States. 

Participants in seminars are responsible for personal expendi- 
tures and should bring additional funds with them. 

It is not possible for the Teacher Exchange Branch to confirm 
the overseas seminar arrangements for housing, academic 
facilities, and international flights before April. Seminars gen- 
erally begin in mid-to-late June. Seminar participants are re- 
quired to attend all seminar activities and to travel on group 
flights if scheduled. Participants are not permitted to join sem- 
inars already in progress. 



REAPPLICATION FOR TEACHING 
POSITIONS AND SEMINARS ABROAD 

A candidate who is not selected to participate in the program 
may reapply but must observe the same application deadlines 
as new applicants. Renewal applicants are required to submit 
a new application each year and a current reference from their 
immediate supervisor. Other references are good for three 
years. A new "Administrative Approval for Applicant" form is 
also required. Applicants will be advised if additional data or 
an interview will be required. 



DEADLINE 



Applications for participation in the Teacher Exchange Pro- 
gram for the 1987-88 school year must be submitted by 
October 15, 1986. Applications and reapplications received 
after October 1 5 will be considered only for opportunities for
