David Nunan Travel Award 2013 Winner
I can’t believe it but I actually won this award! WAA! It’s for $800 USD to cover conference related costs. Considering I’m heading overseas next year for TESOL International Convention and English Language Expo 2013 every bit of funding helps.
I was looking for any kind of external conference funding to help me get to TESOL 2013 and, upon a Google search (no really!) I came across the David Nunan Travel Award call for applications . Now when I first read the webpage it was actually out of date, having 2011 stamped all over the place, and thought, “Doh. It’s not available anymore!” BUT then I read a little more carefully and found the call for applications nestled in among the outdated (yet relevant) info. So it pays to read through a whole post and it also pays to do a Google search for funding opportunities. I would have never come across this award otherwise. Special thanks to Richard for the amazing support, guidance and reference letter that helped me win!
