English Language Programs Conference Grants

To support the ongoing professional development of its community, English Language Programs offers conference grants to Fellow and Specialist alumni as well as current virtual Fellows and Specialists when the topic of their conference presentation is related to their project activities.  

In-person conferences: Starting on January 1, 2022, English Language Programs will resume providing in-person conference grants, dependent on local health and safety regulations. Grants cover the costs related to travel, lodging, and per diem as well as conference registration. Only domestic US travel costs are covered. If grant applicants live within commuting distance, only registration is reimbursed.

Virtual conferences: Virtual conference grants reimburse the cost of the presenter’s virtual conference registration.


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.
