The International Programs Center (IPC) invites UNCG campus and community members to participate in the Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (Fulbright TEA) program as a Friendship Family Host. The program is hosted by UNCG in collaboration with Guilford County Schools.

Fulbright TEA participants are secondary school teachers from all over the world. The goals of this program are to provide participants with unique opportunities to enhance their teaching and leadership skills and to increase their knowledge about the U.S. through first-hand experiences, networking, and cultural activities. UNCG expects to host 23 teachers.

The friendship hospitality weekend is scheduled for the weekend of September 21-22, with the opening reception to meet the fellows and plan time together on Monday, September 16. This cultural experience will help participants connect with families in our community and learn about U.S. home life. Hosts will be paired with one or more Fulbright TEA participants.

If hosts are not available September 21-22, they can communicate with participants to find a more convenient time. Hosts are required to participate in a virtual orientation to help better prepare you for the experience. IPC will offer different orientation days and times to accommodate busy schedules.

Those interested in hosting may provide information about themselves in the Friendship Family Host Application or scan the QR code. Overnight stays are welcome but not required. The application deadline is August 30.

For any questions, please contact Dr. Maria Anastasiou, associate provost for International Programs at m_anastasio@uncg.edu.

Fulbright TEA is supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and administered by the International Research and Exchange Board.
