Apply today for the Rosa Aronson TESOL Professional Learning Scholarships

by David Cutler | 07/21/2017
TESOL International Association is now accepting applications for the Rosa Aronson TESOL Professional Learning Scholarships. Established in March 2017 to honor former TESOL Executive Director Rosa Aronson, the scholarship provides professional learning opportunities to TESOL professionals from underserved countries. Seven scholarships will be awarded per year (one for each of the seven years that Rosa served as executive director). Each scholarship will be for a maximum value of US$500 and can cover the cost of the Global Professional membership ($35) along with any professional learning opportunity offered by TESOL International Association (courses, convention, symposiums, Advocacy & Policy Summit, and others as they are developed).

Any TESOL professional who is a legal or native-born resident of a country with a gross national income of US$15,000 or less per capita (as defined by the World Bank) and has not received any type of cash award, travel grant, or scholarship from TESOL within the past two years, is eligible to apply. For information on how to apply, please visit the award website.

All applications must be submitted by 1 September 2017.

If you have any questions, please contact TESOL Awards
