Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program

The U.S. Embassy in Minsk is pleased to announce the Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program for Belarusian secondary school teachers for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Fulbright program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by former United States Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. Fulbright grants are awarded to students, scholars, teachers and other professionals from the United States and to foreign nationals to study, teach, or conduct research. Since its inception in 1946, more than 370,000 “Fulbrighters” have participated in the Fulbright program.

The 2020-2021 program will mark the twenty-fourth year of the Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (formerly the Teaching Excellence Awards program) and the third year the program will be known as the Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program.

Teachers are nominated to participate in the Fulbright TEA Program based on their educational experience, academic training, leadership and professional experience. Final selection of Fulbright TEA teachers is made by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB). The FFSB is an independent, presidentially appointed board that has oversight responsibility for all Fulbright academic exchange programs.

Country Application deadline: April 12, 2020
