Become a Fulbright Scholar

The University of Toledo, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education Fulbright-Hays Program, is sponsoring a seminar in the southern African countries of South Africa and Lesotho, June 21 – July 30, 2008. Designed for educators, the focus of the seminar will be southern African political, cultural and historical relations, especially the relations between South Africa and Lesotho.

Participants will spend over five weeks in southern Africa interacting with African teachers and government officials while visiting historic and contemporary sites and sharing professional expertise with teachers and organizations in the region.

Accepted seminar members will pay $850 of the direct program costs of over $8000 per person plus personal expenses including for pre-and post-travel seminars in Toledo and transportation to and from the departure/arrival airport. Information and applications (due January 10, 2008) are available at
