While we do communicate with the career services office at your school, we wanted to contact you directly. Southern Teachers Agency emails announcements about STA job fairs and available positions throughout the academic year.  We hope that you will share these announcements with students who may be interested in working in a private school environment as a teacher, coach and/or administrator.  If there are other members of your department who would be more appropriate recipients, please forward this message or let us know.

The hiring season for the 2013-14 academic year will begin very soon and we encourage students who are interested in teaching to apply to Southern Teachers Agency before the winter break.  Doing so will allow ample time to compile a complete credentials file and be prepared for the peak hiring season, which begins in January. We also encourage applicants to begin speaking with potential references at this time.

1)    Best of the South! Atlanta, GA, February 9

Boren Scholarship Sessions

The University of Illinois National and International Scholarships Program will be hosting an information session on National Security Education Program (NSEP) Boren undergraduate study abroad scholarships on Friday, November 30 at 3:00 in room 514 at 807 S. Wright Street. We will provide participants with information about the program and tips on filling out competitive applications. The campus application deadline is January 16 for any study between May 2013 and May 2014 (all students are eligible for semester or year-long programs while some students may be eligible for summer intensive language programs as well). Students are encouraged to begin writing application drafts before winter break.

The Boren provides study abroad scholarships of $6,000-$20,000 for a full academic year or $4,000-$10,000 for a semester for U.S. citizens to study in Asia, Africa, Central & Eastern Europe, Latin America, or the Middle East on almost any study abroad program. These are merit-based scholarships (approximately 1 in 5 eligible applicants receive awards including multiple University of Illinois students every year). In order to receive the scholarship, award winners must enter into a service agreement requiring that they attempt to work in a paid position for the federal government in an area related to national security—generally the Departments of State, Defense, Homeland Security, or the Intelligence Community within three years of graduation (deferrals possible/encouraged for graduate study). Winners also receive priority-hiring status. Further information is available at

Please direct questions to David Schug by email at or at the fifth floor, Illini Union Bookstore Building, 807 South Wright Street.
