Do you want to make a difference by teaching abroad? We are excited to announce the opening of the 2018-2019 fellowship application!

The English Language Fellow Program is the perfect opportunity to build your professional skills abroad, learn about new cultures in a meaningful way, and share your TESOL expertise with the global communities that need it most. Selected Fellows embark on paid 10-month-long teaching fellowships at academic institutions in more than 80 countries around the world.

The following table outlines the important dates and deadlines to keep in mind during the application process:

September 1, 2017 Application for the 2018-2019 academic cycle opens
November 30, 2017 Priority application deadline to receive consideration for all available projects
January 16, 2018 Project matching and selection begins and continues until all projects are filled
June 2018 Application for the 2018-2019 academic cycle closes

Please read the eligibility requirements and the application instructions before applying. Once you’re ready to apply, visit our online application to fill out your information and submit! Although we accept applications on a rolling basis, we encourage applicants to submit their applications before the November 30 priority deadline for best consideration until all fellowships are filled.

If you are re-applying for the program, you can log back into the system using your previous login information. Your previous application is saved in the system, but you will need to update your information and fill out new sections before submitting.
