The American Studies Program for Korean English Teachers is currently on hiatus for the 2021 application cycle due to COVID-19. Applications are anticipated to open again for the 2022 application cycle. KAEC will post updates on our website.

The Fulbright American Studies Program for Korean English Teachers began in 2002 as the Korean counterpart to the U.S. Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) program in Korea. The American Studies Program brings Korean teachers of English to the United States for approximately four to five weeks of graduate-level training in English language education and American Studies. Instruction in English teaching methodology and the diversity of America’s history, culture, society, and education system is coupled with real-world experience as, for two weeks of the program, grantees live with an American host family while teaching at a U.S. primary or secondary school. Bringing this knowledge back with them to Korea, and to their own classrooms, grantees are able to increase the clarity and accuracy of their teaching on the English language and on the United States.
