Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program

The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of State is a nine-month, non-degree program for young and early career English teachers at college level or educators in related fields. Fulbright FLTA 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 strengthening the instruction of foreign languages at U.S. colleges and universities. Selected Fulbright FLTA participants from India would be teaching assistants in Bengali, Hindi or Urdu classrooms at select U.S. campuses. Placements range from large institutions and small liberal art schools to community colleges and minority-serving institutions. Fulbright FLTA candidates should be adaptable to different locations and situations.
