The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) program offers Jordanian teachers of Arabic and teachers of English an opportunity to join a fully-funded 9-month program to teach and study at an American university for the academic year 2021-2022.  

The (FLTA) is a non-degree program, which gives early-career Jordanian English teachers, teachers of Arabic for non-native speakers, and anyone interested in this field (with prior teaching experience, excellent Arabic language skills, and good English skills with a maximum of 7 years of teaching experience), the chance to join the faculty members of a US university or institution to teach Arabic to American students. While the grantees teach Arabic, they will be able to enhance their English language skills and boost their teaching technique during the grant period.  Also, they will be immersed in American society, learn more about the American culture, and get the chance to introduce the Jordanian culture to their American peers.  

What does Fulbright cover

  • Visa
  • Round-trip air tickets
  • University placement, registration and tuition fees
  • A monthly stipend that covers accommodation and living allowance
  • Health insurance for the grant period.
