Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships
Language: Applicants should be native speakers of English. No knowledge of Romanian is expected.
Grant period: 9 months, beginning with a two-day orientation session at the beginning of October. Attendance at the orientation session is expected.
Candidate profile: Candidates at all degree levels are considered, but preference is given to graduate students enrolled in a degree program, irrespective of field of study, who are interested in international education and teaching. Preference is also given to applicants in the social sciences, humanities/English language and American studies. Previous teaching experience is helpful.
Nature of assignment: Placement is primarily at universities. In the past, grantees were placed in Iasi, Brasov, Constanta, Iasi, Sibiu Timisoara and Bucharest. Grantees will assistant-teach under the supervision of an experienced English instructor and will serve as a resource for conversation, vocabulary, and reading and writing courses. Grantees may also be involved with outreach about U.S. culture and society.
Supplementary project: Grantees are expected to engage in other activities related to their personal, career, and/or educational interests. This may be an independent study/research project or other activity, which will not conflict with assigned assistant-teaching. Applicants should include a brief description of their supplementary projects in their Statements of Grant Purpose.
Standard grant benefits are the same as for the Student Fulbright Award.
