The Sylvia Jones Legacy Scholarship supports one or more mid-career teachers to attend the CLTA/CWLP Summer Seminar. Sylvia Jones was a teacher, a supervisor, a CLTA past president and Conference Coordinator, and California Foreign Language Project (now CWLP) leader, in addition to her other many remarkable achievements. Sylvia’s extraordinary life is immortalized with this legacy scholarship founded according to her wishes by her husband, Vernon, and her son, Norman. The scholarship provides financial support to teachers who have been teaching languages between 10-20 years. The number of teachers and the amount that each teacher is awarded each year is dependent on revenue generated by the legacy and by contributions.
Qualified applicants will be selected by the Summer Seminar & CLTA directors & staff. Awards have been as much as $200. Recipients will be advised of the exact amount upon notification.
