2020 TLC Professional Development Awards
TLC Professional Development Awards

The Texas Language Center is now accepting proposals for 2020 professional development awards! The TLC offers professional development awards to UT-Austin language-teaching instructors to enhance language classes taught at the University. These mini-grants are specifically for practicing instructors of languages—at any rank.  Recipients are encouraged to present the impact of the grant to language-teaching faculty and students at one of the TLC's monthly Language Matters talks or a workshop. Preference will be given to projects that will have immediate measurable impact on students in UT language courses. Grant awards will range from $500 to $1500, depending on the scope of the proposed project.

Please note: Proposals will be accepted through January 31, 2020. No late proposals will be considered. Awards are available for use at any time during the period April 1 - August 31, 2020.

As in recent years, we are not able to compensate for your time. Award funds must be paid out as reimbursements for receipts presented. Receipts may be for purchases related to your research or projects. For example, books and materials, fees for professional conferences or workshops, museum admissions, professional organization memberships and travel expenses (meals, lodging, gas, flights, etc.) that have associated RTAs and are presented within 60 days. 

It is important that you talk with your department to be sure you follow University, College, and Department purchasing and travel policies!

Please see our website for the submission form and very important details.

For more information, please contact the Texas Language Center at (512) 471-6574.
