Teaching Assistantship Program in Austria

Since 1962, the U.S. Teaching Assistantship Program in Austria has provided U.S. college and university graduates with opportunities to work at secondary schools throughout Austria as teaching assistants.

U.S. teaching assistants not only enhance the instruction of English as native speakers, but they are also important resources for firsthand information about the United States and the “American way of life.” The Austrian Federal Ministry of Education and Women’s Affairs (BMBF) finances this program, which is administered by Fulbright Austria (Austrian-American Educational Commission). While the participants in this program contribute to the Fulbright goal of promoting mutual understanding, this is not a Fulbright grant program. For information on the Fulbright student program in Austria, please consult the Institute for International Education at us.fulbrightonline.org/ or the website of Fulbright Austria

For more information about the program, including how to apply, visit the program website at www.usta-austria.at/. Only online applications will be accepted. The application deadline for the program year 2016-17 is Jan. 15.
