The Fulbright-Nehru English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) program provides opportunities to graduating seniors, recent graduates or Masters' students who demonstrate a high level of maturity and the initiative to teach English at the secondary level. ETAs will generally teach conversational English and some composition to middle and high school students.
Starting from the year 2012-13, the Fulbright–Nehru English Teaching Assistantship Program will have attached to it a research component apart from the teaching assistance in classrooms. The English Teaching Assistant will have to choose a topic for research and write a short paper on it at the end of the grant.
Duration: 9 months
Candidate profile: Candidates must be native English speakers. Candidates with degrees in English, Education or TEFL/applied linguistics, are preferred, but candidates from all majors are welcome to apply. Some previous teaching/tutoring experience is preferred.
Nature of assignment: Approximately 20 - 25 hours per week of classroom teaching is expected, plus all class preparation time and additional school-related activities. ETAs will generally teach conversational English and some composition to middle and high school students.
