As summer and fall 2024 events are scheduled, we will post them here. Keep checking!

In fall 2023, we hosted the Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) Program.

21 teacher-scholars from 17 countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia participated in the program held September 13 – October 30, 2023. The focus was media literacy and the program included a variety of lectures related to education, as well as field experience in local high schools. Outside the classroom, this group explored all that the Madison area — and beyond — has to offer!

We are excited to announce that we will host this program again in fall 2024. The presence of the Fulbright participants enriches the UW-Madison campus learning community, and we are incredibly honored to host such talented and passionate scholars here. Thank you, Fulbright!
