Dear CAFAM members,
The Maine Department of Education is spreading the word about fully-funded summer language fellowships for teachers of Mandarin who are non-native speakers, and for college students currently enrolled in education programs and who intend to teach Mandarin.
Organized by the American Councils for International Education, this 2013 Intensive Summer Language Institute will take place in Changchun, China.
Participants receive ten hours of graduate credit through Bryn Mawr College. The Institute provides many opportunities for curriculum building, networking and professional development. In addition to daily intensive language training, participants will enjoy cultural activities and excursions designed to reinforce classroom material.
Information and application instructions are located online at http://www.americancouncils.org/isli. Applicants must provide official transcripts and two reference letters. All materials are due on February 11, 2013.
This program is funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.
