Description: The Office of Global Educational Programs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), U.S. Department of State, announces an open competition for up to three cooperative agreements to administer a combined total of four components of the Office’s Teacher Exchange Program in Fiscal Year 2018. This Notice of Funding Opportunity reinforces the Bureau’s engagement with primary and secondary school educators and seeks interested applicant organizations to administer teacher exchange programming for domestic and international teachers. Detailed descriptions of the program components are provided under the Funding Opportunity Description section of this document and in the Project Objectives, Goals, and Implementation (POGI) document associated with this solicitation. Proposals should reflect a vision for all components, interpreting the goals of the Fulbright-Hays Act and the Teacher Exchange Programs with creativity, as well as providing innovative ideas and recommendations. Up to three award recipients may be issued cooperative agreements under the FY 2018 Teacher Exchange Program NOFO. The selected award recipient(s) will be responsible for providing complete programmatic and administrative support for each assigned component including the following broad categories: program planning and management; participant recruitment and placement; orientation and preparation of participants and host/mentor educators; enrichment activities; participant monitoring and support; fiscal management and budgeting; program monitoring and evaluation (including ad hoc program and financial reports as requested by the Teacher Exchange Branch); and alumni programming and follow-on activities. This work will be supervised under the auspices of the Cooperative Agreement(s) by ECA. Should one or more components of the FY 2018 Teacher Exchange Program be awarded to (a) recipient(s) that does/do not currently administer those program components, the new recipient(s) and current administrator(s) of the Teacher Exchange Program’s relevant component(s) will be required to collaborate closely to ensure a successful transition. Proposals should include schedules and timelines for notifying ECA, overseas partners, potential applicants and participants of recruitment cycles, placements, travel arrangements and cross-cultural and program information in a timely manner. Programs must comply with J-1 visa regulations and FFSB regulations, as relevant. Teacher exchange participants in the United States and abroad should be identified through open, merit-based competitions.
