The current demand for bilingual French Teachers creates an unprecedented opportunity for students who study Bilingual Education to have numerous job opportunities available to them once they become certified bilingual teachers. There are currently seven elementary schools, three middle schools and soon one high school in the New York City Public School System with French Dual Language Programs. This demand is only expected to grow in the near future, creating endless opportunities for qualified and enthusiastic students.

There are several $5,000 scholarships available, made possibly by generous donations from the Société des Professeurs et Francophones d'Amérique, the Embassy of France, the FACE Foundation, and individual donors. These scholarships are for candidates enrolled in Master's or Certificate Program in Bilingual Education who plan on teaching in a French-English Dual Language Program in NYC after obtaining their degree and/or certifications.
