Overview

The English Language Fellow Program is seeking experienced U.S. TESOL professionals to participate in paid teaching fellowships at universities and other academic institutions around the world. As participants in a U.S. Department of State public diplomacy initiative, Fellows are cultural ambassadors who enhance English language teaching capacity abroad and promote mutual understanding through cultural exchange.

In return, the program provides professionals with a platform to build skills that can greatly enhance their TESOL careers.
