The US Embassy Dhaka has called for applications for the 2024-2025 Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Programme aiming to increase their English language proficiency, and enhance their knowledge of the United States.

The Fulbright Programme is the US government’s flagship international educational exchange programme aimed at fostering mutual understanding between the United States and other countries around the world. 

The Fulbright FLTA Programme is sponsored by the US Department of State and is administered by the Institute of International Education.

Applications are due by Friday, June 30, 2023, at 11:59 pm (Bangladesh time).

The programme provides scholarships for highly motivated early career Bangladeshi educational professionals working in English language and other related fields (eAmerican studies, journalism and media, American or English Literature, and Bangla language instructors) to teach Bengali at a US higher education institution. 

This nine-month, non-degree programme provides Bangladeshi academics with an excellent professional development opportunity to refine their skills, increase their English language proficiency, and enhance their knowledge of the United States.  

Fulbright FLTA fellows typically teach Bengali language classes to American and international students from around the world.  Fellows and their students will have a unique opportunity to learn about each other’s cultures and societies. 

Fulbright FLTA participants may assist with up to 20 hours of language classes per week and are required to enroll in at least two courses per semester, one of which must be in American Studies.  Coursework is offered on either an audit or credit basis. 

The participants will also be expected to facilitate cultural events, language clubs, discussion groups, and interact with their host community through conversation groups, extracurricular activities, and community outreach events.  Since 2006, nearly 50 Bangladeshi academics have participated in this prestigious educational exchange.
