Key RELO Programs

English Access Microscholarship Program

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.

Distance Education

 E-Teacher Scholarship Program

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 Abdellatif Khadra khadraAB@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.
