The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (Fulbright TEA) brings international teachers to the United States for a six-week program that offers academic seminars for professional development at a host university. Participants observe classrooms and share their expertise with teachers and students at the host university and local secondary schools.

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.

At Kent State University, the program is managed by the Gerald H. Read  Center for International and Intercultural Education (CIIE), located in the College of Education Health and Human Services (EHHS).
