Exchange Programs for Academic Professionals

FY 2020 competition for the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program.

 

The Palestinian Affairs Unit in Jerusalem and the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) are pleased to announce the FY 2020 competition for the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program.

The Fulbright FLTA Program is a nine-month, ECA-funded, non-degree program for early career (not more than seven years of teaching experience) English teachers or professionals in related fields to teach their native language (Arabic) in an American college or university.  Candidates who are teachers in the fields of American Studies, Journalism and Media, and American/English Literature will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.  In preparation for their return to careers in their home countries at the conclusion of the program, participants have the opportunity to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency, and extend their knowledge of the society and culture of the United States while serving as teaching assistants for their native language to U.S. students and strengthening foreign language instruction at U.S. colleges and universities.  Fulbright FLTA participants also interact with their host communities in conversation groups, extracurricular activities, and community outreach projects.  Fulbright FLTA participants must return to their home countries upon completion of the program.
