Alumni

Alumni Registration Grants

To support the ongoing professional development of Fellow and Specialist alumni, the English Language Programs is pleased to provide financial sponsorship for alumni presenting at the TESOL International Convention or a regional TESOL conference during fall 2018 or spring 2019.

Any English Language Programs alumni presenting at a TESOL conference on a topic relating to program activities may apply for this grant. Grants will reimburse conference registration fees after the successful completion of a presentation. Presenters will remain responsible for the cost of travel, accommodations, and incidentals.

To qualify, applicants must:

  • be an alum of the Fellow Program or Specialist Program
  • have successfully completed a Fellow or Specialist project
  • have a session proposal accepted for presentation at a qualifying TESOL conference
  • present on a topic related to the English Language Programs (e.g., projects, resources, or publications developed during fellowship/assignment; impacts of fellowship/assignment on students/colleagues back home, etc.)

*current Fellows and Specialists may apply for a grant if they will have completed their assignments before the supported conference occurs.

To apply, applicants must send the following to outreach@elprograms.org (subject line: “Alumni Registration Grant Application”) no later than one month before the start of a selected conference:

  1. A copy of the session proposal submission including a session description
  2. A copy of the proposal acceptance letter including the title of the session
  3. An explanation of why the presenter wants to attend and present at this TESOL conference (250 words or less)
  4. A link to a published Alumni Impact Statement on the COP explaining the impact of the presenter’s fellowship or Specialist project on his or her home and host communities
  5. Documentation showing payment of conference registration fees
