The goal of the Global Outreach Fund is to support English language teacher professionals who face personal and/or institutional financial constraints limiting their access to the professional development products and services offered by TESOL.
The TESOL Global Outreach Fund is supported by member donations. These donations enable members and nonmembers to apply for TESOL membership and professional development program scholarships.
A subsidized global outreach membership fund
is available to new members who are unable to pay full dues to join. (The fund is not available for membership renewals or subscriptions to TESOL Quarterly.) The members’ portion of the dues is as follows:
Global Electronic Members: $10
Student Members: $10
Individual Members: $30
Global Electronic Membership is only available to individuals living in countries on the qualified eligible countries

To apply, submit an online application with the following items:
- Statement of professional need/benefit addressing how the grant would benefit you personally and/or your place of employment, and expectations of how you would share this professional development knowledge with colleagues (maximum of 350 words)
- Professional CV
