The Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA) is a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. It will provide nearly 100 secondary school teachers from Eurasia, South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Western Hemisphere with unique opportunities to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills, and increase their knowledge about the United States. The international participants will travel to the United States in Spring or Fall 2018 to participate in a six-week professional development program at a U.S. university.

The TEA Program is a six-week non-degree, non-credit, customized academic program; the program includes seminars on new teaching methodologies, curriculum development, lesson planning, instructional technology and a practicum in a U.S. secondary school.

The fellowship provides J-1 visa support, round-trip airfare to the United States, a welcome orientation in Washington, D.C., university training program, accident and sickness coverage, housing (generally shared with other program participants), meals, book allowance and the opportunity to apply for follow-on grants.
