By connecting language teachers and administrators across borders, we build teacher capacity and increase English language comprehension in the region.
Across Latin America, educational institutions are training children, youth, and adults in a critical skill for a globalized world: English.
Our Teacher-in-Residence (TIR) grants allow for Partners chapters to coordinate exchanges of English teachers to strengthen technical capacity and share pedagogical methodologies with their peers. TIR grants fund international travel for trips that include at least 30 days of English teaching activities at a binational center in Latin America. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of State.
Sending and host chapters must coordinate with a binational center in Latin America. The trip must have a minimum duration of one month of English teaching activities at the binational center. Please review the Teacher-in-Residence Travel Grant Guidelines for more information.
TIR grants are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. Complete instructions and the online application form are now available in the following languages:
