The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program fully funds US citizens with college degrees to work as teaching assistants abroad in over 80 countries worldwide. You can apply as a graduating senior, graduate student, or as an alumnus/alumna. The ETA Programs place Fulbrighters in classrooms abroad to provide assistance to the local English teachers. ETA’s help teach English language while serving as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. The age and academic level of the students varies by country, ranging from kindergarten to university level. Applicants for English Teaching Assistant Programs can apply to only one country. Consult the Fulbright website for details on specific country requirements and numbers of awards.
