April 20, 2021

Fulbright Commission in Korea: The governments of the U.S. and South Korea support the Korean-American Educational Commission (KAEC) in its operation of the Fulbright program and other activities set by the KAEC Board. One of these programs, the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) program brings more than 100 Fulbright grantees each year to Korea to teach English in public schools across the country, focusing on regional areas outside of Seoul.

The International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is a professional exchange program in which current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of fields experience the United States firsthand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts. U.S. Embassy personnel nominate candidates for the IVLP.

IVLP on Demand provides small groups of South Korean participants the opportunity to meet and confer with their professional counterparts in the United States. U.S. Embassy personnel nominate candidates for the IVLP on Demand program. Please contact the Office of Exchanges and Alumni for more information about Embassy Seoul’s exchange programs.
