Fulbright ETAs are available in 75 countries. Each ETA program is planned by the host country, so independent elements vary in terms of location/setting, level of teaching, etc. In most cases, ETAs are fixed in schools or universities outside of capital cities; are allocated activities to improve their students’ language abilities and knowledge of the U.S.; are fully amalgamated into the host community. Most teaching assignments are not full-time. Candidates are allowed and expected to study additional study/research/community engagement plans in addition to their ETA responsibilities.
