- In 2016, 65 Fellows from 14 countries and 4 world regions participated in ILEP. They held an average of 10 years of classroom experience and taught English, science, mathematics, social studies, and special education at the secondary level.
- With a special focus on teacher leadership, all ILEP Fellows complete a Professional Development Module (PDM). These capstone projects are created via a professional learning community model in which Fellows collaborate with their peers to research and design 8-hour teacher training workshops. Since 2009, ILEP Fellows have produced 107 PDMs totaling 1,110 hours of training time.
- ILEP Fellows foster special diplomatic relations with Americans throughout their time in the United States, especially in American classrooms. Each Fellow is partnered with an experienced US secondary school teacher and spends at least 90 hours in the classroom, bringing a truly international experience to American students.
