About U.S. Department of State English Language Fellow Program
The English Language Fellow Program sends experienced U.S. TESOL professionals on paid teaching assignments at universities and other academic institutions around the world.
On a U.S. Department of State public diplomacy initiative, Fellows are cultural ambassadors who promote English language learning and mutual understanding through cultural exchange.

In return, the program provides professionals with a platform to build skills that can greatly enhance their TESOL careers.
