| Where do Fellows work?
EL Fellows serve in countries that are committed to developing English communicative competence in their students and professionals. Since 2001, the EL Fellows Program has placed 1,000 Fellows in over 80 countries in all regions of the world. Through projects initiated by U.S. Embassies abroad, Fellows promote English language learning around the world.
Serving as an English Language Fellow means 10 months of challenging and rewarding work. This commitment takes determination, flexibility, patience, and a sense of humor. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with projects from AY 2009-2010 and AY 2010-2011 or read some of the Highlights from the Field written by EL Fellows.
"I want to do it because I want to do it."
During the application process, you will have the opportunity to indicate a preference to work in a specific region. You may also indicate that you are willing to be considered for multiple regions in the world. The Georgetown Program Management team considers the needs of each project, the skills and experience of each applicant, as well as the applicant’s regional preferences (if any). The more flexibility you indicate in terms of where you are willing to serve, the greater your chances of being selected as a finalist candidate. Successful applicants are matched to specific projects and placed on candidate rosters for final consideration by the U.S. Department of State.
