Professional Development Grant Award


Deadline Extended to May 8th!


The Maryland TESOL Professional Development (PD) Grant is a small grants program that is intended to support the work of practicing teachers. The purpose of the PD Grant is to recognize individual efforts that promote, benefit and/or enhance the service to students of English as a Second Language.  Through this program, MDTESOL funds projects and initiatives which cross-cut a variety of agents and our extended communities.  


All MDTESOL members are eligible to submit a grant application.  Successful grant applications are those that will serve to connect and enhance ESL services through teachers' initiatives. Small grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded at the Annual Spring Dinner. 


Recipients must publicize a summary of how the award was used to benefit our profession as a presentation at the annual conference, and as a written summary to be published in the MDTESOL newsletter.

"Without MCAEL, we’d be duplicating efforts and maybe not doing [our work] very well.  I’m so impressed by the people of all ages and backgrounds who are involved.  We all have a commitment to help people learn English, so they can function in the community and within families."
