LanguageCorps is thrilled to announce our new partnership with American University’s School of International Service (SIS)! As a part of this partnership, LanguageCorps teachers and alumni who are admitted to one of SIS’s graduate degree programs in international affairs will receive a guaranteed minimum scholarship award equal to one academic credit and up to a maximum of 18 credits for highly qualified applicants. In addition, the admissions application fee is also waived for current LanguageCorps teachers and alumni.
Located in Washington, DC, American University’s School of International Service is ranked consistently among the top ten schools of international relations. More than 3,000 students, from undergraduates to PhD candidates, representing 150 countries, are taught by over 100 full-time faculty. SIS’s policy-practitioner relationships and global university partnerships help to place 80 percent of its students in internships, and enable 40 percent of graduate students, and 80 percent of undergraduates, to study abroad. The School’s faculty, practicing adjuncts and interdisciplinary curriculum prepare graduates for global service in government, non-profits and business.
LanguageCorps teachers and alumni might be particularly interested in the SIS MA in International Communication, (featuring a international education track), MA in International Development, (with tracks in international education, education and development, and youth and development), or the regionally-focused MA in Comparative and Regional Studies.

We’re really excited to be able to offer our program participants a direct path to this prestigious international program! It’s just one example of the many ways that teaching English abroad can open doors both personally and professionally. With international experience becoming more and more important in this competitive job market, teaching English abroad is a great way to stand out from the crowd, and we are very happy to add American University to our list of partners.
