Last Month Abroad101 partnered with the TEFL Institute to give away $10,000 in Teach Certification scholarships! Contestants had to explain in an essay why they desired to teach English abroad, and then share their entries with their networks to garner support and evangelize their cause. We saw some amazing applicants, including undergrads studying Engineering, high school educators, bi-lingual volunteers, and even a cross-country cyclist!
However, the following are those who came out on top. The globally-minded individuals who beautifully articulated what a TEFL certification would mean to them, and who enthusiastically and effectively leveraged social platforms to raise awareness and support.
Without further ado, here are the TEFL Institute’s 10 scholarship winners!
Grand Prize Winners won a full TEFL certification scholarship valued at $1,500.
First Prize Winners won a partial TEFL certification scholarship valued at $1,000.
Second Prize Winners won a partial TEFL certification scholarship valued at $500.
