Exchange Program in the U.S. for Brazilian Awarded Public School Principals

The United States Embassy in Brasília, Brazil, announces a notification of funding opportunity (NOFO) to support a ten-day exchange program in the U.S. for Brazilian awarded public school principals with up to US$210,000 in FY2020 for a project period not to exceed one year. The preliminary start date for this activity is March 14, 2021, and one award is anticipated as a result of this NOFO. However, should both parties consider the results of this exchange to be positive – and also subject to availability of funds and/or appropriate travel conditions – we may agree to
renew this NOFO for up to three additional years.

We are seeking for proposals for the development and implementation of a ten-day exchange program in the U.S. for 27 Brazilian public school principals winners of Brazil’s Public SchoolManagement Award (Prêmio Gestão Escolar – PGE). These school principals will travel accompanied by one education leader assigned by the National Council of State Secretaries of Education (CONSED), and two representatives from State Secretariats of Education. The total number of participants in this exchange would be 30 educators. This exchange program in the U.S. should provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the different high school models present in the U.S. educational system, synergies and potential areas for collaboration and follow-on initiatives.

U.S. Embassy Brasília-Brazil reserves the right to fund any or none of the applications submitted and will determine the resulting level of funding for the award. The authority for this NOFO is found in the Fulbright Hays Act , as amended. Eligible organizations interested in submitting an application are encouraged to read this NOFO thoroughly to understand the type of project sought and the application submission requirements and evaluation process.
