The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The U.S. Em­bassy in Bagh­dad is pleased to an­nounce that it is ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for the U.S. Govern­ment-spon­sored Ful­bright For­eign Lan­guage Teach­ing As­sis­tant (FLTA) Pro­gram. This pro­gram di­rectly sup­ports the goals of the U.S.-Iraq Strate­gic Frame­work Agree­ment to en­hance mu­tual un­der­stand­ing and strengthen con­nec­tions be­tween the people of the United States and Iraq through aca­demic ex­change.

The FLTA Pro­gram is a nine-month non­de­gree pro­gram that pro­vides young teach­ers of English an op­por­tu­nity to re­fine their teach­ing skills, in­crease their English-lan­guage pro­fi­ciency, and ex­pand their knowl­edge of the so­ci­ety and cul­ture of the United States. Par­tic­i­pants will teach Ara­bic to U.S. stu­dents and as­sist in strength­en­ing for­eign lan­guage in­struc­tion at U.S. col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties. Ap­pli­cants must be cur­rent teach­ers of English be­tween 21 and 29 years old, and pos­sess a bach­e­lor’s de­gree at the time of ap­pli­ca­tion.

There is no cost to ap­ply to the FLTA pro­gram. The U.S. Depart­ment of State will fully fund aca­demic study, travel, health in­sur­ance, hous­ing, and pro­vide a mod­est liv­ing al­lowance while in the United States for those selected. The ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line is June30, 2014.
