Fulbright Classroom Teacher Exchange Program
Department of State

The U.S. Department of State sponsored the Fulbright Classroom Teacher Exchange Program with the Institute of International Education (IIE), U.S. Embassies and Consulates, Fulbright Commissions and other partners overseas.

About the Program

The Fulbright Classroom Teacher Exchange Program offered educators the opportunity to exchange teaching positions with a teacher from another country for one semester or academic year. By living and working abroad, Fulbright Teachers improved their understanding and appreciation of another culture and education system. With this enhanced awareness, participants expanded the global perspectives of students and colleagues in their home and host communities and positively impacted the quality of classroom instruction. The program was open to teachers from the United States and selected countries in multiple world regions. 

Other Opportunities

The Fulbright Classroom Teacher Exchange Program has been discontinued beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year. No new applications are being accepted for this program. However, teachers can apply for the The Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Program.
