Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program 2025

Application Deadline: May 1, 2024

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) offers a suite of Fulbright Teacher Exchange programs funded by Congress for U.S. and international educators. These professional learning programs provide opportunities for elementary and secondary educators in the United States and around the world to develop their teaching practice and bring global skills and perspectives to their schools. Through these exchanges, educators forge lasting connections and prepare their students to be future leaders, equipped to work with others around the world to address global challenges.

The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (Fulbright TEA) supports practicing international secondary school teachers. The program includes academic seminars that focus on topics such as new teaching methodologies, student-centered learning, instructional technology, and content-based instruction. The program includes a practicum of at least 40 hours, including opportunities to observe and co-teach with a U.S. partner teacher in a U.S. secondary school near the host university, to actively engage participants in the U.S. classroom environment. Participants will also learn about the United States and their host communities through an offering of cultural activities. In addition to the broad general pedagogical topics mentioned above, the program includes specialized cohorts in the themes of gender in education, media literacy education, and climate education.
