The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and administered by IREX.
Fulbright TEA Program brings international secondary-level teachers to the United States for a six-week program in January 2024 or September 2024 to take academic seminars for professional development at a host university and to observe and share their expertise with teachers and students at the host university and at local secondary schools, pending the availability of FY 2023 funds. The timing of the program is subject to change, depending on conditions in the host communities.
Three grants are available for Malaysian secondary school teachers of English, English as a Foreign Language (EFL), Math, Science, Foreign languages, and Social Studies, including Special Education teachers in those subjects. Please note that as a Fulbright program, all Fulbright TEA program policies and participants will be subject to the regulations for teacher exchange participants established by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB).
The safety and security of participating Fulbright TEA teachers and their home and host communities is our priority. If the COVID-19 pandemic continues into 2023 and 2024 or there are other emergencies, the program may need to be adjusted (program rescheduling, quarantining upon arrival, briefer school visits, field experiences, hybrid or virtual components, etc.).
