The Fulbright Commission and the International Agency of the French Ministry of Education, the Centre International d’Etudes Pédagogiques (CIEP), offer up to 6 awards for Fulbright English Teaching Assistants to France.  These 6 Fulbright ETA awards are part of the general French Government English Teaching Assistantship program, and are enhanced with an additional monthly stipend, a housing allowance where applicable, Fulbright enrichment programs, and guidance.

Candidates who submit applications to Fulbright will only be considered for the 6 Fulbright ETA awards administered through IIE and the Fulbright Commission in France. The general French Government Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF) offers an additional 1,100 positions for Americans to teach English in France each year, however TAPIF has its own separate application process. Candidates wishing to have the best chance of receiving an award to teach English in France are encouraged to submit BOTH the Fulbright ETA and the general French government TAPIF applications (see below for additional application requirements).

For further information on the French Government Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF), please consult the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. website:  http://highereducation.frenchculture.org/teach-in-france
FPAs can also contact Marla Mazer, the IIE program manager for Europe.  Marla can be reached at mmazer@iie.org or 212-984-5326.

Could it be that someone (other than the President) is going to do something about student loan debt? 

Jill Rupinski has been talking to me about bringing back the PAFA apron to sell to students (I promise: any money we make will go to pizza for students).  Here we see PAFA alum Misty “rocking it” (as the young people say) as a crop top (aprons will appear longer in person).  Is there an interest in obtaining this once-prized studio accessory?
