The purpose of the Fulbright-Hays GPA Program is to promote, improve, and develop the study of modern foreign languages and area studies in the United States. The program provides opportunities for faculty, teachers, and undergraduate and graduate students to conduct group projects overseas. Projects may include either (1) short-term seminars, curriculum development, or group research or study, or (2) long-term advanced intensive language programs.

Priority Specific Geographic Regions of the World. A group project that focuses on one or more of the following geographic regions of the world: Africa, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific, the Western Hemisphere (Central and South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean), Eastern and Central Europe and Eurasia, and the Near East.

There are three types of GPA short-term projects:
(1) Short-term seminar projects of four to six weeks in length designed to help participants integrate international studies into the curriculum at an institution of higher education (IHE) or a school system by focusing on a particular aspect of area studies, such as the culture of an area or country of study;
(2) curriculum development projects of four to eight weeks in length that provide participants the opportunity to acquire resource materials for curriculum development in modern foreign language and area studies for use and dissemination in the U.S.; and
(3) group research or study projects of three to twelve months in duration designed to give participants the opportunity to undertake research or study in a foreign country.
