The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program offer opportunities for students to work 20-30 hours per week in an English language classroom, under the supervision of a classroom teacher. Like all Fulbrights, the ETA is about fostering mutual understanding between the US and the host countries. Students apply to an individual country's ETA program, but do not get to choose where in the country they are placed. ETA's generally have a project that they do alongside their classroom responsibilities, though teaching and understanding should be the students' main purpose.
