GRANT OBJECTIVE:  (Revisions Approved April, 2020)

To provide Carolina TESOL members an opportunity to enhance the educational experience of English language learners by supplying financial aid (up to $1500) for activities/initiatives that promote learning.

The intent is to allow for more creative learning opportunities not normally supported by the school budget that will advance English language acquisition.

Applicant must be  a Carolina TESOL member in good standing in an educational role that directly impacts English learners in NC and/or SC.

Activities/initiatives should be those that have the most impact on students and English language acquisition.  See Scoring Rubric for more details.
