LangAbroD grants are used to defray travel expenses for members who wish to improve their fluency in the language they teach by visiting a country where that language is spoken.
The LangAbroad is a stand-alone grant.
Applicants for LangAbroD Grants may also apply for one of the government grants.
The LangAbroD is funded from the CLTA general fund. This year’s level of support has not yet been determined.
CLTA encourages teachers who apply for travel/study grants to apply for LangAbroD grants simultaneously.
