US Teaching Assistantship Program – Austria

November 4, 2015 Karen Popp Teaching AssistantshipTravel

Since 1962, the US Teaching Assistantship Program in Austria has provided US college and university graduates with opportunities to work at secondary schools throughout Austria as teaching assistants. US teaching assistants not only enhance the instruction of English as native speakers; they are also important resources for first-hand information about the United States and the “American way of life.” The Austrian Federal Ministry of Education and Women’s Affairs (BMBF) finances this program, which is administered by Fulbright Austria (Austrian-American Educational Commission). While the participants in this program contribute to the Fulbright goal of promoting mutual understanding, this is not a Fulbright grant program. For information on the Fulbright student program in Austria, please consult the Institute for International Education at or the website of Fulbright Austria.

Only online applications will be accepted. Please note that the application deadline for the program year 2016-17 is January 15, 2016.

You can find more information about the program, including how to apply, on the program’s website
