The selected teachers are taken to the U.S. on an academic exchange program to further develop expertise in their subject area, enhance their teaching skills and English proficiency, and increase their knowledge about the United States. Upon their return to Pakistan, they are eligible to apply for TEA Small Grants and become members of the Pakistan - U.S. Alumni Network. The program is fully sponsored by the Regional English Language Office (RELO) at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad.
