Proficiency Teacher Scholarship 
 
Have you left a conference with a new idea and all the tools and knowledge to implement... except for funding?
 
This grant is to open to thought leaders who work in middle and high school language programs, who strive to advance their own proficiency practice. Grant 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.

3 reminders:
  • Requests must connect to this month’s Proficiency Teacher Grant theme to be considered.
  • Your application responses can be brief.
  • We recommend reviewing how we evaluate and distribute awards prior to applying.
