Have you left a conference with a new idea and all the tools and knowledge to implement... except for funding? We’d love to hear from you! This scholarship is open to thought leaders who work in middle and high school language programs, and who strive to advance their own proficiency practice. Scholarship funds can be applied to professional development, materials for research, supplies to pilot a new proficiency-driven strategy in your classroom, or funds you need to share your voice: presentation/workshop supplies, conference entry costs, podcast or blog costs, etc.
