The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (Fulbright TEA) brings international, secondary-level teachers to the United States for a six-week program. Teachers will take academic seminars for professional development at a host university. In addition, they observe classrooms and share their expertise with teachers and students at the host university and at local secondary schools.
Depending on country of origin, international teachers have the opportunity to apply to either the Fulbright TEA General Pedagogy Cohort or the Media Literacy Cohort. The Fulbright TEA Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by IREX.
