Fulbright English Teaching Assistanships – Special Opportunity

The current competition for the Fulbright U.S. Student ETA Program to Brazil has a SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY for an additional 20 ETA Awards for grants beginning in MARCH 2011. In addition, the number of ETA grants for Brazil for March 2012 has increased to 30.

Applicants who are available to begin a grant in March 2011 (e.g., spring 2011 graduating seniors will not be eligible) and wish to be considered for the Brazil ETA March 2011 awards must select this option from the dropdown menu in Question 3, Special Opportunity, in the Online Application. Candidates recommended for the Brazil ETA March 2011 Award will be notified by mid-December 2010, with final grant offers made in January 2011.

Applicants who do not wish to be considered and those not recommended for the March 2011 Award will be considered in the current competition for the 30 Fulbright ETA Awards for grants beginning in March 2012. Click here for more information on the Brazil ETA Program.

Students and recent graduates of teaching and TESOL programs, in particular, should consider this program. For the former group (non-TESOL), if they have good second language skills, they may be good candidates, especially if they have teaching or tutoring experience with ESL populations.

Refer to the website ETA Table in the Program Overview/Types of Grants section and the country summaries for the most up-to-date information on all ETA opportunities. ETAs for 2011-2012 which do not appear in the brochure are available to Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Panama.
