US Teaching Assistantship Program in Austria

Since 1962, the US Teaching Assistantship Program in Austria has provided US college and university graduates with opportunities to work at secondary schools throughout Austria as teaching assistants.

You can find more information about the program, including how to apply, on the new website http://www.usta-austria.at/ Only online applications will be accepted. Please note that the application deadline for the program year 2015-16 is January 15, 2015.

The following link directs you to the website, where you can find the program description and download an informative flyer about the program for 2015-16: https://www.usta-austria.at/site/programdescription/program

US teaching assistants not only enhance the instruction of English as native speakers; they are also important resources for first-hand information about the United States and the “American way of life.” The Austrian Federal Ministry of Education and Women’s affairs (BMBF) finances this program, which is administered by the Austrian-American Educational Commission (Fulbright Commission). While the participants in this program contribute to the Fulbright goal of promoting mutual understanding, this is not a Fulbright grant program. For information on the Fulbright student program in Austria, please consult the Institute for International Education at http://us.fulbrightonline.org/ or the website of the Austrian-American Educational Commission at http://www.fulbright.at/

Grant Opportunity- Surdna Foundation

The Surdna Foundation is now accepting proposals for one- or two-year support to extraordinary artist-driven projects as part of its Artists Engaging in Social Change funding area. All artistic disciplines will be considered, including cross-disciplinary work. The request for proposal (RFP) is open to both 501(c)(3) organizations and individual artists and culture bearers, but artists and collectives that are not incorporated as 501(c)(3)s must apply under a fiscal sponsor. Through this RFP, Surdna will support compelling projects that artists develop in response to their communities’ specific challenges, and will also fund the projects of artists whose long-term, deeply-rooted work has increased social engagement without necessarily being explicitly defined as “activist.” Proposals will be accepted between September 15 and November 12, 2014. Surdna staff, with support from outside experts, will present recommendations to the Surdna board and final decisions will be made in early April, 2015. The Foundation believes this process will allow us to make considered investments in artistic practices that focus on engaging and reflecting communities.  Application guidelines are provided below and frequently asked questions, including grant amounts and definitions of key terms, are available here.
