In keeping with its mission, the AAUSC offers a limited number of travel/professional development grants to members who wish to attend the annual convention of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), which is held each November. The grant usually covers up to $500 and can be used to pay the ACTFL conference fee, and/or travel and lodging expenses. Although any current AAUSC member may apply for a grant, priority will be given to members who:
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 are invited from current AAUSC members; AAUSC Board of Director members are not eligible to apply. Applicants should state how attendance at the conference might strengthen the applicant’s involvement with AAUSC and how he or she plans to contribute to the organization in the future. The application should also include a budget stating how the money would be used, and give details of other sources of support, if any.
