Deadline:  19th February, 2024.

The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program brings international secondary-level educators to the United States for a six-week professional learning opportunity at a host university.

Participants take part in academic seminars, observe and co-teach in U.S. classrooms, and collaborate on best educational practices with educators and students at the host university and at local secondary schools. Participants engage in various civic and cultural activities in their host communities to promote mutual understanding.

Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement participants attend academic seminars at a host university that focus on topics such as new teaching methodologies, student-centered learning, instructional technology, and content-based instruction. Participants complete a minimum of 40 hours in a field experience with a U.S. partner educator of their same or a similar discipline in a local secondary school.

Participants also learn about the United States and their host communities through an offering of cultural activities. Applicants may choose the general program or apply for a cohort focused on gender, media literacy or climate education.
