French Teaching Intern Grants

Application deadline:
January 15, 2018

 


Supporting Schools to Host French Teaching Interns

We are pleased to invite you to apply for a $4,000 grant from the French Dual Language Fund that will support your school in hosting one or more French Teaching Interns who will train alongside your teachers in French dual language and immersion classes. 20 grants of $4,000 are available for the 2018-2019 school year.

Please note the French Dual Language Fund awards only one grant per school, per academic year.

Teaching Interns are native French speakers recruited by the Embassy in collaboration with the Centre international d’études pédagogiques (CIEP), a joint agency of the French Ministry of Education and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Please note that while there are a number of agencies in the U.S. that facilitate French Teaching Interns, priority will be given to schools hosted by the CIEP. Others will still be considered.

Interns are typically graduate-level students in the process of completing a Masters program, or recent graduates in other teacher training programs.

 


Eligibility Criteria

Eligible applicants must:

• Be teachers, PTO, PTA or administrators at a U.S. public school, OR district administrators OR state-level administrators affiliated with a French dual language or immersion program. Note: French curriculum schools (établissements homologués) are not eligible to apply for this grant.

• Work for a school, district or state Department of Education which has a French dual language or immersion program that has been in operation for 2 or more years, and that will serve 30 or more students in the 2018-2019 academic year.

• Demonstrate that French is used in at least 30% of instruction within the French dual language or immersion program

 


Selection Criteria

The selection will be need-based, focused on the ability of the school to accommodate the French Teaching Intern in a positive environment, with priority given to schools that will select a teaching intern through the CIEP’s program.
