Dear Colleague:
American Councils for International Education, our non-profit organization, would like to make you aware of this remarkable and fully funded professional development opportunity for educators. I would appreciate your assistance distributing this announcement to anyone who you think is interested so they may have the opportunity to apply over the summer. I am happy to answer any questions you have about these programs. My contact information can be found at the bottom of this email. These programs are fully funded through the U.S. State Department.

Educational Seminars: Bring the World to Your School
The Educational Seminars Program provides short-term professional development opportunities to teachers and administrators from around the world, for 2-3 week reciprocal exchange programs and one-way professional development programs. Participating countries include Argentina, Brazil, Greece, India, Italy, Portugal, and Uruguay. All Educational Seminars provide airfare, training, travel health care, and living costs.

We are currently accepting applications for the Uruguay Program, open to U.S. elementary and high school teachers proficient in Spanish. The Uruguay Teacher Exchange Program is a two-way exchange that provides the opportunity for U.S. and Uruguayan elementary and high school teachers to work together on issues of mutual interest to their communities, schools and students. This program includes two weeks of hosting in February and two weeks of travel the following summer.
Program Application Deadlines for Uruguay: September 15, 2012
