2023 TLab Scholarship Application: Charlottesville Branch

This application is for an ESU Charlottesville Branch TLab Scholarship. If you are not located in or around Charlottesville, please click here to find a scholarship in your area, or apply for a national scholarship.

Every year, the branches of the English-Speaking Union (ESU) provide nearly 50 scholarships for classroom teachers in their communities. ESU scholarships are for current classroom teachers attending our multi-week courses at Shakespeare's Globe, the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Oxford.

1. Find your local ESU scholarships. 

2. Read your local scholarship's application procedure. Pay attention to local deadlines! Most ESU branches will ask you to use the application form on this page. Some will interview candidates or have a unique procedure.

3. Apply!

Refund policy: Scholars will adhere to the program refund and cancellation policies.  ESU scholarship recipients will sign a contract wherein they are required to repay the entire scholarship amount (concurrent with the program's refund and cancellation policies) if for any reason they must cancel their course of study or are unable to complete the course.

If you have any questions, please contact Deborah Pruett at: pruettdl@gmail.com  or   Alice Uhl at: auhl@esuus.org

After reviewing your application, your local ESU Branch will contact you to schedule an interview, if applicable.

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

If you are awarded an ESU TLab Scholarship, you will then need to complete the UK institution's application and email all their required supporting documents for review and submission by ESU National Headquarters by their specific deadline in Spring 2023. 

Final acceptance is determined and notified by the UK institution via email in Spring 2023, not the ESU.

Teachers who do not receive an ESU TLab Scholarship may still apply to the program of their choice through the ESU. However, they will need to provide the funds in full for the selected program.Please consult our Fundraising Guide for further advice and information.
