Teach For Bangladesh is looking for our country’s most promising leaders to take on the challenge of rebuilding our nation. Our admissions process is highly selective, and we normally admit less than 10% of applicants. Successful candidates typically demonstrate a proven record of academic excellence and non-academic leadership, alignment with our core values and mission, strong critical thinking skills and the ability to overcome challenges. Candidates must also be proficient in both Bangla and English, and communicate compellingly.
Eligibility Requirements: The minimum education requirement to apply for the TFB Fellowship is a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university. Candidates must hold a valid Bachelor’s degree at the time of application, or expect to hold a valid Bachelor’s degree by December 31 of the year in which they are applying.
The Teach For Bangladesh Fellowship is open only to Bangladeshi nationals, dual citizens who hold a Bangladeshi passport, and foreign nationals of Bangladeshi origin who have a No Visa Required seal on their passport.
Please note: You can only apply to the Fellowship ONCE in a year. If you apply more than once for the same cohort, your application will automatically be rejected. If you would like to apply again in the following year, you must re-register.
The first step in the application process is to fill out a quick form online, indicating your interest in the TFB Fellowship. Registration allows us to keep you up to date on application deadlines, events, and other important resources. Register your interest in the Fellowship here.
Once you register, you will be emailed the link for the full online application. If you have any questions regarding the Fellowship or application process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from our recruitment team will get in touch with you.
We are currently accenting applications for the 2018 Fellowship, which will commence from November 1, 2017. There are three deadlines in 2017 for applying to join the 2018 TFB Fellowship.
Applicants will be notified of their application status 1-3 weeks after the online application deadline. If your application has been accepted to the second stage of the admissions process, you will be invited to sign up for a phone interview.
The phone interview typically lasts 30-40 minutes, and is an opportunity for you to speak with someone from Teach For Bangladesh about your experiences and interest in the Fellowship. Be prepared to answer questions about your CV and your application.
You will be notified of your updated application status 2-10 working days after your phone interview. If your application has been accepted to the third and final stage of the admissions process, you will be invited to sign up to attend an Assessment Center.
At Assessment Center, you will be asked to teach a sample lesson, participate in several group activities, complete a critical thinking test, and sit for a one-on-one interview. The Assessment Center usually takes an entire day, so we recommend planning in advance by following the instructions emailed to you along with your invitation to participate.
Candidates will be informed of their final admissions decision within 2-10 working days of their Assessment Center date. Successful candidates will have up to one week to accept their offer.
