The International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP)
*** We are no longer accepting applications to this program. If funding permits, we will begin another recruitment process in November 2013 ***
The International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP) provides international teachers with unique opportunities to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills and increase their knowledge about the United States. ILEP consists of a semester-long non-degree, non-credit academic program at a U.S. University including seminars on new teaching methodologies, curriculum development, lesson planning, and teaching strategies. Participants will audit two courses in the host university’s School or Department of Education and participate in a practicum in a U.S. secondary school near the host university. All participants will also receive a technology allowance and instructional technology training. Cultural enrichment, mentoring, and support will be provided throughout the program. ILEP will commence in January 2014 and conclude in May 2014.
Upon returning home, ILEP alumni are eligible to apply for small grants for essential teaching materials, follow-on training for other teachers, collaborative projects between schools in their home country and the United States, and other activities that build on their U.S. experience.
