Hanoi, May 16, 2022 – U.S. Mission Vietnam is pleased to announce the 2023 competition for the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistantship (FLTA) Program.
The Fulbright FLTA Program is a nine-month, non-degree program for early career (not more than seven years of teaching experience) English teachers or professionals in related fields to teach their native language at an American college or university. Candidates who are teachers in the fields of American Studies, Journalism and Media, American/English Literature, and teachers of their own language as a foreign language will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Participants have the opportunity to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency, expand their knowledge of U.S. society and culture, and strengthen foreign language instruction at U.S. colleges and universities. Fulbright FLTA participants also interact with their host communities in conversation groups, extracurricular activities, and community outreach projects.
Fulbright FLTA participants will assist in up to twenty hours of language classes a week and are required to enroll in at least two courses per semester, one of which must be in U.S. Studies. Coursework is offered on either an audit or credit basis. Fulbright FLTA participants will also be expected to facilitate in-person or virtual cultural events, language clubs, and language tables.
The Fulbright Program in Vietnam will coordinate to nominate up to five primary and two alternate candidates from Vietnam.
The application is accessible online at https://apply.iie.org/flta2023. The deadline for application submission is July 31, 2022.
