The U.S. State Department provides E-Teacher online distance education courses to train foreign English language teaching (ELT) professionals in current teaching methods and specialized areas within this academic field.
All questions regarding the E-Teacher Scholarship Programs from teachers working and living in Estonia must be sent to the U.S. Embassy Tallinn by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The E-Teacher program offers foreign English language educators the opportunity to complete a university-level online professional development course. Scholarships cover tuition and course materials. Participants use online tools to participate in discussion boards and complete assignments. Participants who successfully finish a course receive a certificate of completion from the course provider. Post distributes certificates to participants.
Recruitment: E-Teacher candidates should be non-U.S. citizens and current ELT professionals (e.g., teachers, teacher trainers, program administrators). They should be highly motivated individuals who are dedicated to their own professional development and to sharing the knowledge they gain with colleagues in their local area. Candidates should be committed to fulfilling all program requirements, which include dedicating at least 8-10 hours to course work per week.
