The United States Mission in Nigeria has a job opening for qualified Nigerians that can teach Hausa and Yoruba languages/cultures in universities and colleges. Disclosing this information, the Public Affairs Section of the Mission noted that the FLTA program is aimed at presenting young foreign teachers with the opportunity to lecture students in American universities and colleges on these languages and culture.

Aside from the opportunity of teaching these languages, it is a unique platform for teachers employed to refine and improve their teaching skills, boast their proficiency in the English Language, and expand their knowledge about the cultures and customs of the US through engaging in non-degree studies. Teachers will also get to strengthen the instruction of foreign languages in US institutions.
This information was made public on the US Mission website. See the statement below:
Becoming a participant carries with it a great responsibility. Along with their studies, participants teach language courses, supervise language labs and lead language table discussions.
They may also act as resource persons in conversation groups, cultural representatives, attendants in language laboratories, coordinators of extra-curricular activities, guest speakers in civilisation courses, head of language clubs, houses, tables and much more.
Grant Benefit: The grant covers the grantee’s round trip airfare to the US, a settling-in allowance, monthly stipend, housing allowance, health insurance, and a tuition scholarship for their coursework.

Provisions will be made for participants to attend a Fulbright FLTA Summer Orientation in the United States before beginning their program. During the FLTA program, fellows are also invited to participate in a special Fulbright enrichment seminar and conference for professional development and networking opportunities.
Note: The grant does not cover travel of family members; hence grantees will not be allowed to travel with spouse and children or relatives to the United States even at their own expense.
Field of Study: Competition is open to applicants who major in English Language, Education, Hausa, Yoruba, Linguistics and Languages.
