Placement Type
  • Teacher Training
  • University/Post-Secondary Institution

Grantees will be assigned to English teacher training colleges or universities throughout Argentina's 24 provinces. ETAs will be assigned as language-learning assistants for up to 20 hours per week and will not be responsible for teaching entire courses. The Fulbright Commission and the Argentine Ministry of Education, in consultation with ministries of Education in each province and individual host institutions, will match selected grantees with an appropriate host institution. Assignments are based on institutions' availability and needs, and the academic profile and background of the ETA grantee. Placements can be in any Argentine city. Individuals should not apply for or accept this award unless they are willing to be placed in any geographic location, barring specific health and safety considerations. ETA placements are determined in the late fall prior to the grant start. As a note, teacher training colleges, which train EFL teachers, may or may not be affiliated with a university; they are part of the Argentine system of higher education (institutos terciarios). In order to graduate as EFL teachers, students must attend four-year undergraduate programs.

Placement Locations
  • Capital City
  • Regional City

Grantees will be placed either in large, small, or medium-sized cities throughout Argentina's 24 provinces. In some provinces, the ETA might be based in more than one city.

Supplementary Project
Required

As English Teaching Assistant responsibilities will not exceed 20 hours per week, grantees are expected to engage in projects or other activities related to their personal, professional and/or academic interests during the grant period. Grantees may pursue a course of study, conduct research on topics related to Argentina, engage in specific volunteer work, or a combination of these activities.  As placements will not be confirmed until November 2023, applicants should be flexible when proposing a supplementary project. Grantees may be placed at a location where they cannot carry out the goals of their initial supplementary project. In such cases, appropriate alternatives can be discussed with the Fulbright Commission once placements are finalized.

Housing Arrangements

Grantees will be expected to arrange their own housing. The Fulbright Commission in Argentina may provide additional resources upon request.
