2020 TLab Scholarship Application: Central Florida

Indicates required field (*)

Before you apply, ensure you meet the following criteria:

Scholarships are offered only to educators in the Central Florida, tri-county area, which includes: Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties.

Applicants must have completed at least four years of full-time teaching in one of the areas in which the scholarships are offered.

Applicants must intend to remain in the classroom for at least three years here in Central Florida following their summer study as the purpose of granting teachers this experience is for them to take the knowledge gained back into the classroom and actively share it with students.

The scholarship programs are intensive and demanding. Travel to a foreign country requires stamina and diplomacy coupled with a willingness to learn about the customs of other cultures.

A valid US passport is required for travel, and a visa may be required.

The scholar's role, in addition to being a student, is to be an ambassador for both the English-Speaking Union and the teaching profession.

Each successful applicant will sign a contract with the ESU Central Florida Branch wherein s/he agrees to repay the entire scholarship amount if for any reason s/he fails to fulfill the entire course of study.

All successful applicants are required to attend an award reception Sunday, February 2, 2020.

All successful applicants are required to attend a mandatory ESU Central Florida Branch meeting, date TBD, to offer an 8-10 minute presentation highlighting her or his summer experience.

Each successful applicant is expected to become an active member in the ESU Central Florida Branch. Membership for 2019-2020 will be paid by the Central Florida Branch as part of the scholarship.

Shakespeare's Globe Scholarship recipients are expected to be actively involved as hosts at the ESU Central Florida Branch Shakespeare Competition, date TBD.

Please note:

Your local ESU Branch will contact you to schedule an interview, if needed.

Once accepted and awarded a TLab Fellowship by their local ESU Branch, the TLab applicant must then apply and be accepted by the TLab program (Globe, Oxford, SUISS). Most ESU TLab scholarship recipients are accepted into their first choice program. However, these programs have limited availability. The Globe is extremely competitive.

Teachers who do not receive the scholarship may still apply to the program of their choice.  However, they will need to provide the funds in full for the selected program.

Final acceptance is determined and notified by the UK institution in Spring 2020, not the ESU.

If you have any questions, please contact Annelise Nussbacher at anussbacher@esuus.org or call 212-818-1200 ext. 212.
