The English Teaching Fellow Program

This web site is an archive of the former USIA site as it stood in September 1999, and is now maintained as part of the Electronic Research Collection of historic State Department materials by the federal depository library at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Full-time teachers of English (up to 20 hrs/wk) plus possible materials/test development or teacher training activities are recruited for worldwide assignments yearly (see current list of Fellows).

Assignments are for twelve months, with extensions of up to another twelve months occasionally granted. The English Teaching Fellow Program provides recent M.A. graduates in TESL/TEFL with the opportunity to teach abroad at universities, teacher training colleges, binational centers, or other host country institutions that use English teaching as a means to promote cultural understanding.

Eligibility Requirements:

Benefits include:

The program remuneration is sufficient to support only one person. Dependents travel at the fellow's expense.

Fellows begin their assignments in September, following orientation in Washington, DC.
