Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad: Preparing Successful Proposals and the Evaluation Process of Applications.
Harris, Mathilda E.
Elements of a successful proposal for the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program are identified, based on a 1981 experience in Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as a 1983 Peru trip. A successful proposal and application should cover: assessing the institution, institutional involvement in identifying world areas, research on previous programs, host country arrangements, evaluation of the program, selection of the faculty, faculty orientation, debriefing sessions upon return to the United States, and the qualifications of the project director. During the grants competition, the following criteria are used by judges: the soundness of the plan, host country arrangements, budgetary considerations, evaluation provisions, and the selection process. Issues that should be considered include: whether there is a sound international curriculum and area studies component at the institution; whether arrangements with the host institution are made in advance; and the staff members' experience in group travel abroad and their knowledge of the language and culture of the host country. The consortial approach, which might involve several institutions and their staff, is also an option for the project. (SW)
