The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (Fulbright TEA) Media Literacy Cohorts bring international secondary-level educators to the United States for a six-week professional development program to take academic seminars at a host university. The Media Literacy Cohort will focus on promoting and developing media literacy and critical-thinking skills in their home schools, classrooms, and communities. Participants observe classrooms and share their expertise with teachers and students at the host university and at local secondary schools.

This program is only open for participants from the following countries: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkey, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

Candidates from other countries may access the Fulbright TEA General Pedagogy program when that application opens, approximately in December 2020.

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.
