Foreign Service Institute
The Department of State's School of Language Studies at the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) is the United States Government's premier foreign language training academy, offering instruction in over 70 languages to U.S. diplomats and their families as well as other Government agency employees. The School employs approximately 500 language and culture instructors who train over 2,000 students annually in language courses ranging from 10 to 88 weeks, both in person and through mentor-guided distance learning programs. While the School is currently subject to an ongoing Federal hiring freeze, we anticipate continuing to recruit via USAjobs.gov for high-quality native and near-native speakers of our target languages to serve as classroom instructors, mentors, and expert linguists once the hiring freeze is lifted. Available contract opportunities can be found through our primary contracting companies Salient CRGT, Global Language Center (GLC), International Center for Language Studies (ICLS), and Yorktown Systems Group.
