Worldwide In-Country ESL/EFL Projects for the U.S. Department of State in 2022/2023
English Language Programs, U.S. Department of State
About the organization
The English Language Programs is the premier opportunity for TESOL professionals to impact the way English is taught abroad. By completing projects designed by U.S. Embassies in more than 80 countries, English Language Fellows, Specialists, and Virtual Educators work closely with local teachers, students, and education professionals to improve English language teaching capacity overseas. Program participants serve as representatives and cultural ambassadors of the United States and, through a unique cultural exchange, they support the U.S. Department of State’s public diplomacy mission abroad.
The English Language Fellow Program sends experienced U.S. TESOL professionals on paid in-country teaching assignments at universities and other academic institutions around the world.
As a U.S. Department of State public diplomacy initiative, Fellows are cultural ambassadors that promote English language learning and mutual understanding through cultural exchange. Fellow projects are 10-month, full-time positions for professionals with a graduate degree in English language teaching and TESOL teaching experience. In return, the program provides professionals with a platform to build skills that can greatly enhance their TESOL careers.
The English Language Fellow Program is now recruiting applicants for the 2022-2023 academic year. The English Language Fellow Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by Georgetown University.
The 2022-2023 Fellow application is now open. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until all projects have been filled. For more information and to apply, please visit our website: https://elprograms.org/
