English Language Fellow Program

Through the English Language Fellow (ELF) Program, the U.S. Embassy Rangoon places talented, highly qualified American TESOL professionals on 10-month fellowships at academic institutions and ministries in Myanmar. ELFs serve as cultural ambassadors who promote English language learning and mutual understanding through their projects which include activities such as: teaching English for up to 15 hours per week, facilitating teacher training, assisting with curriculum and materials development, and conducting outreach. The ELF Program in Myanmar is a competitive program for which any institute interested in hosting an ELF may submit a project proposal. Host institutions should have the institutional and human resource capacity to make effective use of the EL Fellow’s skills and ideas, to integrate an American educator into its staff, and to commit to some level of cost sharing. Host institutions must be fully committed to supporting the professional and personal needs of the ELF. Cost sharing can include housing in an on-campus guesthouse, local transportation, meals, or other expenses. For more information on the English Language Fellow Program go to: www.elprograms.org
