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 at 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.
The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (Fulbright TEA) Program, Media Literacy track, will provide approximately 40 fellowships to international secondary school teachers from Eastern Europe and Central Asia to participate in a six-week non-degree, non-credit academic program at a U.S. university. The international participants will travel to the United States for one of two six-week professional development programs in either fall or spring.
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).
For the fall 2021 cohort, our scholars come from the following countries: Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Turkey, and Ukraine.
