September 24, 2015

DURHAM, NC — FHI 360, a nonprofit human development organization with deep expertise in English language acquisition, online learning and university partnership management, has been awarded a U.S. Department of State flagship English language program.

The E-Teacher Scholarship Program provides comprehensive offerings in the discipline of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and the most current, evidence-based approaches through direct access to U.S. higher education institutions and education experts. The program seeks to improve English language skills acquisition by teachers around the world and to foster cultural understanding between American citizens and those of other countries.

The program will provide at least 1,800 teachers with the opportunity to participate in global online and regional on-demand courses. These courses, designed for the Non-Native English Speaking Teachers (NNEST) community, will be developed through partnerships with U.S. higher education institutions. In addition, FHI 360 will partner with internationally renowned education experts to provide country-specific courses for the participating NNESTs.

FHI 360 will make all of the resources it creates available on an open-source content management system, which will enable the program to provide free, accessible online learning experiences for an almost unlimited number of NNESTs and other learners.

FHI 360 is excited to expand its portfolio of English language acquisition programs along with its network of university partnerships.
