The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program is for Canadian Francophone students and teachers, aged 21 to 29, who want to teach and study in the United States. This is an opportunity for young educators to increase their English language proficiency, expand their knowledge of American culture and customs, and engage in non-degree studies at an accredited post-secondary educational institution in the United States. FTLAs are cultural ambassadors that teach language courses, supervise language labs, and lead language discussions. FTLAs may serve as an instructor or have a purely teaching assistant role.
This placed award allows student to live in the United States for a period of ten months. The award includes a US$400-$600 stipend per month (commensurate with average cost of living in host city), room and board, visa services, health insurance, and a bursary to complete two courses per semester that are most beneficial to the student’s teaching career. Students gain extraordinary teaching experience, spending 20 hours a week on educational activities that are based on the department’s unique needs.
