All scholarships are now closed for the IATEFL Harrogate 2014 Conference and Exhibition. For more information on the scholarship process please see the 'General Guidelines' section below.
If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to attend the IATEFL Manchester 2015 Conference and Exhibition please keep an eye out for new scholarships from April 2014.
Careful reading is the key. Every year the number of scholarships grows and the different sponsors set different parameters for making their awards. So please check the following points in the website description of each scholarship before applying.
In each scholarship you will find the following sections which need to be noted:
‘The award consists of’ – this section tells you what you could win. Some scholarships are very generous and would cover all the costs of attending a conference. Other scholarships are more modest and would help you with your costs but you would need to have some further funding of your own to be able to afford to come. Scholarship awards are as stated on the website and cannot be increased.
‘To qualify you must’ – these are the rules for a particular scholarship. If you don’t meet the qualifications your application will not be considered. Examples of rules are ’you must be a newcomer with between three and ten years’ experience in ELT’, you must be a native of and normally resident in an African country’, ‘you must be an individual member of IATEFL’. Each scholarship has different qualifications, so please read carefully.
‘To be considered, you must submit’ – this section lists what you must complete electronically by the stated deadline. You should use the application form which you will access through the ‘Apply for a Scholarship’ Button. You will be asked to upload a photo for inclusion in the programme and on the poster if you win, please see the photo requirements below.
The deadline for all applications is stated at the bottom of the scholarship details, late applications cannot be considered. (If the scholarship requires a conference presentation, you must include your speaker proposal with your application). Existing IATEFL members must register as a speaker and submit a proposal through the Harrogate conference page and non-members should use the facility on the scholarship application.
You cannot win the same scholarship twice.
If you have won a scholarship, you cannot apply for any other scholarship until three conferences have gone by.
If you are already an IATEFL member and the scholarship you win includes an IATEFL membership, that will cover your next year’s membership.
All applicants, whether winners or not, will be informed by email of the awards made. For scholarships where the deadline iss 22nd August, this will be around the end of September 2013 and where the deadline is the 31st October, this will be around the end of November 2013. Look out for the email and reply at once to confirm your acceptance of a scholarship if one is offered to you.
Each scholarship is decided by a different panel of judges whose decisions are final.
A list of scholarships available can be accessed via this link or the link on the right hand side of the webpage.
