From our National Humanities Alliance friends:
Dear Humanities Advocate,
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.
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

We need to speak out now to ensure that the House appropriations committee approves funding at the current level. Your voice will help ensure that these crucial international education programs remain intact!

Thanks for your help!
