Petition: Prevent deep cuts to funding for Fulbright-Hays

Act now to prevent deep cuts to funding for Fulbright-Hays!
The Senate has proposed drastic cuts to Fulbright-Hays.
This program is crucial for training experts in foreign languages and cultures and ensuring productive global engagement.
The proposed cut would slash $5.1 million (69%) from Fulbright-Hays.
Coming after a steep cut in 2011, this 69% cut would eliminate all new grants for 2017.
Click here to oppose these cuts!

What’s at stake?
A steady supply of graduates with expertise in foreign languages and cultures, international markets, world regions, and global issues.
An important source of funding for dissertation research abroad
The Department of Education’s only program that encourages study abroad
