Placement Type

Secondary School

University/Post-Secondary Institution

Grantees will be based at either universities or high schools. Grantees will teach in coordination with an experienced English instructor and will serve as a resource for classes and units focusing on conversation, vocabulary, reading, writing, and American culture. Grantees will be strongly encouraged to be involved with educational advising and outreach as part of the local EducationUSA Center within American Corner Podgorica (For more information, visit: https://educationusa.state.gov/centers/educationusa-montenegro). Grantees will be expected to be able to work both independently and co-teach, depending on their placement.

Supplementary project: Grantees are expected to engage in other activities related to their personal, career, and/or educational interests. This may be an independent study/research project or other activity that will not conflict with assigned teaching and advising responsibilities. Applicants should include a brief description of their supplementary projects in their Statements of Grant Purpose.  Grantees are also normally asked to design and/or participate in activities at Montenegrin American Corners (For more information, visit: https://me.usembassy.gov/education-culture/american-spaces/).
