Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA)

Since 1968, the Institute of International Education (IIE) has administered the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program, aimed at strengthening foreign language instruction at U.S. educational institutions by establishing a native-speaker presence. The study of languages is essential in creating true understanding among people of different nations. The Fulbright FLTA Program is designed to develop American's knowledge of foreign languages by supporting teaching assistantships in over 29 languages at hundreds of U.S. institutions of higher education.
