  U.S. Department of State Invites Applications for Fulbright Teacher
Exchange            Program


  The U.S. Department of State's Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program
invites               applications from U.S. citizen teachers and
administrators at K-12 schools and          two-year colleges who wish
to participate in the Fulbright teacher exchange             outside the
U.S. during the 2006-2007 academic year.

  The Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs administers
these           exchanges under the Fulbright Program, the flagship
exchange program of the             U.S. Government that promotes mutual
understanding between citizens of the              United States and
other countries. Approximately 267,500 Americans and citizens         of
other countries have participated as students, scholars, and teachers
since          the inception of the Fulbright Program in 1946.

  The Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program features direct one-to-one
exchanges.            Schools and communities gain the expertise and
perspective of the visiting              exchange teacher and,
subsequently, share the experiences of their returning            U.S.
citizen faculty members. Approximately 400 educators take part in the   
          program each year. U.S. and international teachers continue to
be paid by their         home institutions while exchanging classrooms.

  Administrator exchanges consist of reciprocal three- to six-week visits
to each         administrator's institution. The U.S. administrator
works with his or her               foreign counterpart as a team in
shadowing and sharing information on                   administrative
duties. The program also offers two summer seminars for teachers        
of Latin, Greek, or the Classics.

  Participating countries for the academic year 2006-2007 include
Argentina,              Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech
Republic, Estonia, Finland,            France, Germany, Ghana, Greece,
Hungary, India, Italy, Jordan, Latvia, Mexico,          Morocco, Oman,
Peru, Poland, Romania, Senegal, Slovak Republic, South Africa,          
Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and Uruguay.

  U.S. educators interested in participating must be U.S. citizens, have a
               full-time teaching or administrative position, be in at
least the third year of         full-time employment (for teaching and
administrative exchanges) or in the              second year of
full-time teaching (for summer seminar participation), and be           
fluent in English. In some countries, demonstrated fluency in the
appropriate           language is required. The Presidentially-appointed
J. William Fulbright Foreign         Scholarship Board will select
participants.

  Applications must be postmarked no later than October 15, 2005. Requests
for            applications, publicity material, and general information
should be directed to         Ms. Roberta Croll, Fulbright Teacher
Exchange Program, 600 Maryland Avenue, SW,         Suite 320,
Washington, DC, 20024; phone 800-726-0479;
