Premier's ETA English Scholarship
The ETA sponsors the Premier's Scholarship award of $10,000 for a study in English. It is anticipated that successful applicants would spend up to five weeks involved in this teacher-devised program. Time need not be spent in formal study, but may involve a program of visits to sites, schools and institutions to conduct interviews, observe exemplary practices and collect resources for the preparation of teaching materials related to English education. Further details and application.
If you are interested in any particular area of research that will feed back into the professional community, please apply for funding before 5th May.
