Fulbright Teacher Exchanges

Our Mission

Fulbright Teacher Exchanges create a global community of educators to invigorate student learning. We provide opportunities for educators to share practices across borders and bring international knowledge, skills, and perspectives to their classrooms and schools. Through exchange programs, educators forge lasting connections and prepare their students to be open-minded future leaders who are well-positioned to work with others around the world to address shared global challenges.
