Kennedy Center seeks couples, individuals to teach in China

The David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University is now accepting applications from qualified couples and individuals to teach at universities in China during the 2006-2007 academic year.

Applications are due Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2006.

Although most teachers are hired to teach oral and written English, there is an increasing need for professionals with experience in the fields of linguistics, business, law, economics, science, culture and literature. Formal teaching experience and Chinese language skills are not required, as all classes are taught in English.

Chinese universities prefer applicants with advanced degrees in any field.

To qualify, applicants must be active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, be in a secure financial situation, have excellent emotional and physical health and be age 69 or younger by March 1, 2006 with no childcare responsibilities.

Assignments are for 11 months beginning Aug. 1, 2006, preceded by a two-week orientation at BYU. Chinese universities provide teachers with airfare, housing and a small living stipend. Kennedy Center teacher nominees’ names will be sent to Chinese universities at the beginning of March.

Approximately 700 people have participated in the program since 1989, making friends and building goodwill for both BYU and the Church.

For more information or to obtain an application, call (801) 422-5321 or visit http://kennedy.byu.edu/partners/chinateachers.
