2020 TLab Scholarship Application: Research Triangle NC

This application is for a Research Triangle NC Branch TLab Scholarship. If you are not located in or around Research Triangle NC, 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 Betty Trevino-Roth at btrevinoroth@esuus.org or call 212-818-1200 ext. 246.

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

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.

Teachers who do not receive a 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 applicable, your local ESU Branch will notify you of interview dates and times.

If you are awarded an ESU TLab Scholarship, you will then need to complete the UK institution's application process and provide all their required supporting documents for consideration by their specific deadlines (please see program pages for deadline dates).

If you are not awarded an ESU TLab Scholarship, we encourage to seek out alternate funding sources. Please consult our Fundraising Guide for further advice and information.

If you have any questions, please contact Betty Trevino-Roth at btrevinoroth@esuus.org or call 212-818-1200 ext. 246.
