Some branches have certain stipulations for their scholars, such as geographical restrictions (scholarships could be restricted to certain counties/districts), years of experience, subjects taught, etc. Are there any such requirements for your applicants you would like listed on your branch website?
In 2017, fees were approximately $5,000 for three weeks of study at Scottish Universities' International Summer School (SUISS; University of Edinburgh), Shakespeare's Globe, and the University of Oxford.
Branches offer scholarships in the following ways: "full" (unrestricted, complete coverage of programfees; may also include airfare and/or stipend) or "partial" (set monetary amount to be put towards program fees).
Please be as clear as possible when discussing scholarship opportunities with your applicants/scholars. Determine the amount of your scholarship and enter that estimation below. This information will help ESU staff prepare accurate invoices and will assist ESU staff when working with the British institutions and American scholars in spring/summer 2018.
Do these FULL scholarships include:
After all ESU TLab scholars have been accepted by the UK institution, the ESU receives one invoice from each UK institution for all participants in British Pounds. The ESU then invoices the Branches for the cost in US Dollars. Fluctuations to the exchange rate often occur as we wait for all the TLab participants' scholarship payments. The ESU then pays the UK institutions.
In order to make one payment to each educational institution (i.e. Edinburgh, the Globe, and Oxford), and to offset other charges like credit card payment service fees and banking service fees for each wire transfer payment to each TLab institution, a 3.5% application fee is applied. Program invoices will be sent to the Branch Treasurer, with copies to the Branch TLab Chair and Branch President. Remission of funds in US dollars will be payable to The English-Speaking Union of the United States and due within 14 days of invoicing. Branches must provide information of how/when they will issue travel funds and stipends to their chosen scholars.
Note: If your branch is offering a partial scholarship, please pay this 3.5% fee plus the scholarship amount the branch is covering so the fee is not passed on to your scholar.
Branches will disperse any additional payments directly to the teachers for transportation funds a minimum of 4 weeks prior to travel and stipends if applicable.
A penalty of 5% of the invoice will be charged for payments that are not received until after the program start date.
