Fulbright Student Program: English Teaching Assistant Award

The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program places Fulbrighters in classrooms worldwide to provide assistance to the local English teachers. ETAs help teach English language while serving as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. The age and academic level of the students varies by country, ranging from kindergarten to university level. Applicants for ETA Programs can apply to only one country. This award is not just for future teachers, but rather helps students across disciplines develop skills in intercultural communication and mutual understanding.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • U.S. citizen
  • Academically strong (3.5+ GPA is competitive, although there is no minimum GPA)
  • Must have a clear idea of how time will be spent during the award period
  • Expected to or have acquired an undergraduate degree from an accredited four-year institution in the United States
  • Students of any UTSA College are eligible to apply

The Fulbright Program application opens each year in April. Juniors, Seniors, Graduate Students and UTSA alumni are encouraged to work on applications in late spring and summer ahead of the September 1 UTSA deadline.
