Purpose of Program:
The purpose of the Fulbright-Hays GPA Program is to promote, improve, and develop the study of modern foreign languages and area studies in the United States.

The program provides opportunities for faculty, teachers, and undergraduate and graduate students to conduct group projects overseas.

Projects may include either (1) short-term seminars, curriculum development, or group research or study, or (2) long-term advanced intensive language programs.

This competition invites applicants to submit an application to request support for either a Fulbright-Hays GPA short-term project (GPA short-term project 8 4. 021A) or a Fulbright-Hays GPA long-term project (GPA long-term project 8 4. 021B).

Applicants must clearly indicate on the SF 424, the Application for Federal Assistance cover sheet, whether they are applying for a GPA short-term project (8 4. 021A) or a GPA long-term project (8 4. 021B).

Additional submission requirements are included in the application package.

There are three types of GPA short-term projects:
(1) short-term seminar projects of four to six weeks in length designed to help participants integrate international studies into the curriculum at an institution of higher education (IHE) or a school system by focusing on a particular aspect of area studies, 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 the 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 designed by the applicant 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 provide participants an opportunity to use and strengthen their advanced language training overseas while experiencing the culture in the foreign country.

Participants should have successfully completed at least two academic years of training in the language to be studied to be eligible to participate in a GPA intensive advanced language training 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).
