2021-2022 FULBRIGHT TEACHING EXCELLENCE AND ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT

The program opens in January.

The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (Fulbright TEA) Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The Fulbright program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by former United States Senator William Fulbright of Arkansas. Fulbright grants are awarded to international secondary-level teachers of English, English as a Foreign Language, math, science, and social studies, including special education teachers in those subjects to the United States for a six-week program in January 2022 or September 2022. Since its inception in 1946, more than 390,000 “Fulbrighters” have participated in the Fulbright program. 

The 2021-2022 program will mark the twenty-fifth year of the Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (formerly the Teaching Excellence Awards program), the fourth year the program has been known as the Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program. Teachers are nominated to participate in the Fulbright TEA Program based on their educational and professional experience, academic training, and leadership. Final selection of Fulbright TEA teachers is made by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB). The FFSB is an independent, presidentially appointed board that has oversight responsibility for all Fulbright academic exchange programs.
