Fellow Program

English Language Fellows are highly qualified U.S. TESOL professionals who assist U.S. Embassies in delivering and maintaining quality English language programs. Through 10-month assignments, Fellows share their expertise and interests, develop new skills by teaching in different contexts, and gain unique international experience. They also support U.S. Department of State diplomatic efforts to foster mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries. Involvement in these projects has helped alumni obtain higher-level jobs in the TESOL field.

The English Language Fellow Program is highly competitive, and the teachers selected to participate represent the best of the U.S. TESOL community. We are actively recruiting experienced educators and scholars with a graduate degree in TESOL or a related field and a demonstrated commitment to the field of English language teaching.
