Alumni Virtual Conference Grants

To support ongoing professional development of Fellow and Specialist alumni, English Language Programs offers Alumni Virtual Conference Grants to reimburse conference registration fees during fall 2021 and spring 2022.

Alumni of the English Language Programs who present on a topic relating to their Fellow/Specialist activities may apply for an Alumni Virtual Conference Grant. Grants will reimburse conference registration fees after the successful completion of a presentation, and upon receipt of documentation showing attendance.


The Community of Practice (COP)

The Community of Practice is an exclusive online portal for English Language Program participants and alumni to connect with each other, share and access resources, or post and search job opportunities in the TESOL field. Join today!


Alumni Impact Statements on the COP

Through Alumni Impact Statements on the COP, English Language Programs alumni are encouraged to share stories about their professional and personal lives after their Fellow or Specialist projects. Alumni might write about career accomplishments or how they have shared the impact of their projects with colleagues, students, family, and local communities. Alumni are invited to share Alumni Impact Statements whenever they have news to share. In addition to being posted on the COP, stories and photos may be shared with stakeholders such as the U.S. Department of State, Regional English Language Officers, and Embassies.
