Current calls for volunteers

    Chair of the Scholarship Committee

    IATEFL scholarships offer unique opportunities for English language teaching professionals who might otherwise never have the opportunity to experience, and possibly present at, a large scale international professional conference. It has also proven to be a key route for many who have gone on to volunteer for IATEFL, have articles published, become well-known speakers, create their own regional or national teaching association, or perhaps lead IATEFL as a key volunteer or even president. This volunteer role is very rewarding and has a direct impact on the lives and opportunities of such individuals.
