Bilingual Teaching Fellows

Do you speak, read and write in more than one language? Are you looking to use your bilingual skills in the workforce but need more training and support? Consider applying for the Bilingual Teaching Fellows Program. The program provides a pathway for school instructional aides to complete a bachelor's degree and earn a teaching certificate.

Bilingual teaching fellows work full time in paraprofessional roles, maintaining regular salary and benefits. Through their work as paraprofessionals, they practice and deepen their study with Western Washington University’s Woodring College of Education. Courses are held locally and online. An $8,000/year conditional scholarship covers most of the tuition.
