The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program is intended for Canadian Francophone students and teachers who want to teach and study in the United States. This is an opportunity for early career educators (early career is defined as no more than seven years of teaching experience) to increase their English language proficiency, to expand their knowledge of American culture and customs, and to engage in non-degree studies at an accredited post-secondary educational institution in the United States. FTLAs are cultural ambassadors that teach language courses, supervise language labs, and lead language discussions. FTLAs may serve as an instructor or as a teaching assistant.

This placed award allows students to live in the United States for a period of ten months. The award includes a US$400-$600 stipend per month (commensurate with average cost of living in host city), room and board, visa services, health insurance, and a bursary to complete two courses per semester. Students gain extraordinary teaching experience, while spending 20 hours a week on educational activities that are based on the department’s unique needs.
