The Philippine-American Educational Foundation is now accepting applications for the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA) for the academic year of 2020-2021. Application deadline is on Friday, August 30, 2019.
Funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) at the U.S. Department of State, the FLTA Program is a full scholarship program for early career (not more than seven years of teaching experience) English-language teachers to work as Filipino-language teaching assistants at a U.S. university for one academic year (nine months). FLTA aims at strengthening foreign language instruction at U.S. colleges and universities while providing foreign teachers the opportunity to increase their English language proficiency, refine their teaching skills, and extend their knowledge of the culture and customs of the United States.
During the program year, the participant will have the opportunity to take classes on teaching methodology and other topics, such as American studies. The participant is also expected to participate in university programs and to share the Filipino culture with their colleagues and students.
