THE CORDELL HULL FOUNDATION

The Cordell Hull Foundation for International Education is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to
continuing the work of Cordell Hull, awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 as "Father of the United
Nations."  Secretary Hull served for twelve years under Franklin Roosevelt, the longest-serving
Secretary of State in U.S. history.  Embracing his goals of international peace, the Cordell Hull
Foundation (CHF) has offered programs to improve relations between the United States and other
countries, primarily through educational and cultural exchange, since 1951.

CHF J-1 VISA Teacher Exchange
The J-1 visa Teacher Exchange Program was established by the Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as
amended. Students benefit through learning about the customs and mores of other nationalities, as well as literature
and spoken language skills.  Primary languages represented are French, Spanish, Greek, German, and Mandarin.

The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program allows elementary and secondary-school teachers to teach under CHF J-1 visa
sponsorship in the U.S. from 1-3 years, renewable annually. CHF works directly with schools rather than through
attorneys or other third-party intermediaries.  CHF is not an employment agency and does not look for positions in
which to place individual foreign teachers nor allow foreign teachers to pay for cost of sponsorship in our Exchange
Visitor Teacher program.  The Cordell Hull Foundation does not charge a fee for teacher recruitment unless under
specific contract.
