Established in Morocco in 2003, active in over 85 countries around the world, this program was created by the U.S. Department of State to provide a foundation of English language skills to talented 13 to 20 year-old Moroccan students from disadvantaged families through after school classes and intensive summer sessions.
The E-Teacher Scholarship program offers online, graduate level classes to English teaching professionals in Morocco through the University of Oregon.
The classes require a minimum of ten hours of work per week, for approximately ten weeks. Participants need a high level of English proficiency and a reliable Internet connection in a location where they can work thoughtfully. Scholarships are competitive. If you wish to apply, complete the application and send it to RELONorthAfricaInfo@state.gov before the end of June.
The RELO office offers two popular programs that bring Americans to North Africa.
- English Language Specialist Program brings U.S. academics in the fields of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) / Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) and Applied Linguistics for short-term assignments to Morocco.
- English Language Fellow Program provides junior and senior academics to teach such subjects as EFL and ESP at all levels, pre-service teacher education, and other specialized courses as qualified. They work primarily at the institutional level, but can also do some outreach.
