The U.S. Department of State English Language Fellow Program is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2019. For fifty years, the Fellow Program has promoted mutual understanding between the United States and other countries through English language teaching and learning, and through cultural exchange.
To celebrate this milestone, we want to send Fellow alumni back to their countries-of-assignment. We will select 6 Fellow alumni who apply to the Fellows@50 Encore contest, to go back and give back to their countries-of-assignments for a 2-week project.
To apply for this opportunity, Fellow alumni applicants should develop an idea for an encore project that the applicant could carry out in the country-of-assignment. To be considered for selection, applicants must meet the following criteria:
-Proud alumnus/a of the English Language Fellow Program in good standing with the program.
-Available to travel for a minimum of 2 weeks between April 2019-July 2019.
We are accepting applications from September 18, 2018 until October 18, 2018.
A finalized project and itinerary will be created based on your proposal, and in conjunction with the needs and opportunities identified by the current country’s Regional English Language Officer.
If you have any questions, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: The selected projects will be highly publicized. Encore Fellows will be expected to participate in promotional activities, such as video production, social media activity, and press opportunities.
