CMENAS-GEEO Teacher Program

Open to Grade K-12 Educators

Join the University of Michigan Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies and the Global Exploration for Educators Organization (GEEO) for a trip to Morocco.

This comprehensive 15-day tour will take you through kasbahs, spice markets, and cities pulsing with energy on this comprehensive Morocco trip. Climb onto a camel and explore the edge of the Sahara before admiring the views from the heights of the Atlas Mountains. Experience the energy of imperial cities as you explore souks stuffed with exotic wares. Then, take a moment to appreciate an amazing adventure as you camp under the stars among some of the world’s largest sand dunes. Visit Morocco with us, all while earning professional development credit with other educators.

Global Exploration for Educators Organization (GEEO) will partner on this program with the University of Michigan’s Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies (CMENAS). Accompanying the trip will be a representative of the University of Michigan who will provide guidance to teachers during the trip and help with the development of classroom activities and lesson plans that focus on the historical, cultural, social, political, economic, and environmental aspects of Morocco.

Educators are eligible to apply for a grant from CMENAS, with preference given to MI educators. Recipients of the grant will receive at least a $1,200 credit towards the cost of travel for GEEO's Morocco program departing 7/8/2024. There are two $1200 grants available.

The deadline for these grants is rolling.
