Grant Activity

Teach at the undergraduate or graduate level courses in the field of TEFL or applied linguistics. Applicants should suggest courses for consideration in their proposal and be in touch with the university where they intend to teach. The typical Algerian university class is generally two hours long, meets once per week, and is comprised of an average of 60-150 students per class. Applicants should expect to teach 6 to 10 hours per week. Activities and courses will be finalized in consultation with the U.S. Embassy and host institution. In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright program is designated to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support the mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students (graduate and undergraduate levels), and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary teaching activities. Algeria can be a very rewarding teaching experience for motivated, flexible, and adventurous scholars.
