Corporate-Sponsored Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships
In order to help bring better English-language education to a more diverse group of schools and communities, the Bulgarian Fulbright Commission has engaged corporate partners interested in bringing this unique opportunity to their local communities:
- In 2016, in partnership with ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 TPP, the Commission welcomed its first corporately sponsored ETA to the Professional School of Energy and Electrical Engineering in the town of Galabovo.
- In 2017, the Commission signed partnership contracts with three Bulgarian companies, Assarel-Medet JSC, Opticoelectron Group JSCo and OPTIX JSC, which made possible the welcoming of an English Teaching Assistant to the Professional School of Industrial Technologies, Management and Tourism in the city of Panagyurishte.
The grant parameters of these ETA positions are essentially identical to those of the Fulbright| America for Bulgaria Foundation English Teaching Assistantship; however, the level of English proficiency at the partner schools tends to be somewhat lower, thus it is recommended that candidates for the corporate-sponsored ETA positions have some English teaching experience. If you are interested in a corporate-sponsored ETA position, please fill out the application for the Fulbright| America for Bulgaria Foundation English Teaching Assistantship and indicate in your personal statement that you would also like to be considered for a corporate-sponsored ETA position. For any questions, please contact the Fulbright Bulgaria staff below.
