Travel/Professional Development Grant: Call for Submissions

 The goals of the American Association of University Supervisors and Coordinators (AAUSC) are to:

  • strengthen and improve foreign language curricula and instruction at the university level;
  • strengthen professional development programs for teaching assistants/teaching fellows/associate instructors, or their equivalents;
  • establish a forum for the exchange of ideas, experiences, and materials for TA training;
  • promote research on the training and supervision of TAs.

In keeping with this mission, the AAUSC offers a limited number of travel/professional development grants to members who wish to attend the annual ACTFL convention each November. The grant covers up to $500 and can be used to pay the conference fee to attend ACTFL, and travel or lodging expenses.

Although any current AAUSC member may apply for a grant, priority will be given to members who:

  • are new or recent AAUSC members;
  • are non-tenure-track language program directors/coordinators;
  • will be presenting at the ACTFL convention; or
  • otherwise receive limited or no institutional or other support for conference attendance

Grant recipients are required to attend all AAUSC-sponsored sessions at the ACTFL convention and to post a summary of their experiences on the AAUSC website (aausc.org) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/aausc.lpd).

Applications letters (1 page maximum, single-spaced, 12 pt font) should state:

  • how attendance at the conference will strengthen the applicant’s involvement with AAUSC;
  • how he or she plans to contribute to the organization in the future;
  • a budget stating how the money would be used; and
  • details of other sources of support, if any have been applied for, will be applied for, or have been awarded.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 1 June 2018 

AWARDS ANNOUNCED BY: 15 July 2018
