Teaching Fellowships Available

Marlboro College Graduate School and INTERLINK Language Centers with its partners are pleased to announce teaching fellowships for 2014-15. The fellowship is designed to prepare qualified and innovative teachers of English who base their instruction on learners and learning, communicative use of language, cultural understanding, group learning, and reflective practice.

Fellowships consist of two summers of full-time study in Vermont, USA, which is complemented by online study between summers and two years of full-time teaching in Saudi Arabia.
