HANOI, Sept 6, 2016 – The U.S. Mission in Vietnam is pleased to call for nominations of outstanding candidates to participate in the 2017 Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Program.

This program brings Vietnamese teachers to the United States for a semester and provides them with opportunities to study topics that are unique or particularly strong within the U.S. school system. Teachers will also be able to directly observe and learn about the U.S. education system. Selected candidates will be placed at a U.S. university graduate school of education and will audit up to two classes, pursue a project, observe/team-teach/lead classes for U.S. teachers and students in local primary and secondary schools, and engage in other teaching related activities.

The Fulbright Program in Vietnam, at U.S. Embassy Hanoi, will coordinate and nominate up to six candidates from Vietnam. It is anticipated that two awards will be granted.
