IELTS Morgan Terry Memorial IATEFL Scholarship

This scholarship, funded by the IELTS Partners (British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, Cambridge English), is in memory of Morgan Terry, a dear colleague who made a significant contribution to the work of IELTS until her untimely death in 2011. 

The award consists of:

  • registration for the TEA SIG's pre‑IATEFL conference event
  • registration for IATEFL
  • a year's IATEFL membership
  • a maximum of five nights' accommodation
  • travel costs including, if necessary, an economy flight to the UK* GBP 55.00 per day expenses.
* This includes cost of flights and airport transfers but not the costs of stopovers.

To qualify you must:

  • have prepared learners for taking IELTS
  • have never attended the main IATEFL annual conference
  • agree to write an article six months after the conference about how attendance at the conference has enriched your practice.

To be considered you should submit:

An overview of an educational activity or learning resource (you have developed) which could help prospective IELTS candidates prepare for the test. Your submission should be between 400-500 words and:

  • clearly describe or illustrate your idea; what it is and how it works
  • explain how it could benefit prospective candidates
  • describe how it could be adapted and used by other teachers and learners.

Entries will be evaluated in terms of their originality, potential impact upon learning and accessibility. The submission deadline is 21 June 2023, 16:00 (UTC+1). Please apply using IATEFL's online application form and CV format. Make sure you have your photo ready to upload. The winner will be informed by the beginning of September.
