Description

Do you speak a language that isn't taught at your university? Would you like to flex your creative muscles and experiment with ways to engage your peers in language? The SLE fellowship is open to anyone who is enthusiastic and wants to take initiative and make a cultural impact at your university. We’re recruiting SLE fellows to introduce their language to their peers in 1.5 hour per week semester-long courses. As the title suggests, SLE is completely student-run. That means we need YOU in order to operate! Apply now! Applications excepted until February 14th, but will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
