Virtual Exchange/Collaborative Online International Learning

US-UK Fulbright Global Challenges Teaching Awards

Join us in addressing the pressing issues of our time through collaborative international education initiatives. The US-UK Fulbright Global Challenges Teaching Awards, supported by AAC&U in partnership with the US-UK Fulbright Commission, offers a unique opportunity for faculty from both sides of the Atlantic to co-create virtual exchange programs for undergraduate students. This initiative fosters and supports transatlantic partnerships aimed at addressing four specific global challenges: Racial Justice, Inequality, Climate Change, Polarisation and Division

AAC&U is pleased to partner with the US-UK Fulbright Commission on the launch of applications for the Global Challenges Teaching Award. This award seeks to promote digital innovation in teaching through building sustainable transatlantic links between students, faculty, and institutions.

The 2024 application cycle is closed.

Successful applicants will be matched with a UK/US partner to take part in a yearlong grant program that will include funding from the US-UK Fulbright Commission and professional development from AAC&U's Institute on Virtual Exchange/COIL.
