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.

Depending on country of origin, international teachers have the opportunity to apply to either the Fulbright TEA General Pedagogy Cohort or the Media Literacy Cohort.
