About this Fellowship

Offers recent graduates a year of experience teaching English in secondary schools in Austria.

While similar to a Fulbright, this teaching assistantship in Austria is not a “traditional” ETA program but a “real-life” job placement at usually one to two (rarely three) Austrian secondary schools for 13 hours per week from October until the end of May. TAs are assigned mentor teachers who guide them and are fully insured and salaried instead of receiving a stipend. Renewal for a second year is possible with a record of superior performance.

Applicants must have intermediate proficiency in German. Previous teaching experience is not required but can be beneficial – this includes (but is not limited to) tutoring, summer/language/sports camp counselor duties, YMCA involvement, church group leadership, Boy/Girl Scout leadership roles, previous TA jobs, or any other relevant career opportunities.

Applications are accepted between November 15th and January 15th each year.

Award Value

Provides monthly stipend of approximately $1500, and health insurance.
