Dear Colleagues:

The National Institute for International Education Development (NIIED), an
agency of the Korean Ministry of Education, is planning overseas study
programs this summer for Korean secondary teachers in a variety of science
and vocational fields.  They are hoping to send up to 100 teachers in five
groups sometime in July and August, and they are seeking universities in the
U.S. who are interested in hosting one or all of these short-term
development programs.  Each program is expected to be four weeks in
duration, to focus on teaching-learning methods in the sciences (theory and
practice), and to include secondary school site visits.  The programs are
budgeted at a maximum of $75,000 each exclusive of international travel, and
will be fully funded by NIIED.

NIIED has an RFP for these programs, and is seeking inquiries from U.S.
institutions with experience in professional teacher development.  Fulbright
Korea has worked with the Korean Ministry of Education for many years, and
though we are not involved in administering the program, we are cooperating
fully with NIIED in publicizing this opportunity and increasing the number
of viable applications.

If your institution is in the U.S. and would like to know more about this
opportunity, or if any office within your university (College of Education?)
would like to see the RFP, please have them contact me by email and I will
send the RFP as an attachment (Word document.)  Further contact after that
point will be directly with the program officer at NIIED as indicated in the

I hope you will pass this on to others who might be interested.
