The 1999 Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program offers study-visit awards to Japan. The study-visit awards are for three weeks. Its goals are to increase the level of understanding between the two countries and to provide a significant opportunity for professional development. The program is fully funded by the Government of Japan.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens who are employed full-time in any discipline as a teacher or administrator for grades 1-12. To apply, individuals complete an application, including a two-part essay describing a follow-on plan for imparting the knowledge gained through the experience to their classrooms, schools or communities.

The three week study-visits occur in June, October, and November.
