Announcing the WorldCALL 2008 Scholarship Awardees

The scholarship committee has reached its final decisions. We had an extremely difficult time deciding the awardees. Many highly qualified applicants had to be turned down purely because of budgetary constraints. Our goal was to decide on individuals who met these criteria:
  • People who have been active in CALL (not just language pedagogy or administration) as evidenced by recent publications, presentations or on-going projects.
  • People who exhibited in their "Statements of Purpose" a clear goal for their attendance at WorldCALL 2008 and a plan to disseminate the knowledge so gained upon their return home.
  • People who represent a wide spectrum of geographical areas, balanced by gender and years of experience. Geographical selection was also, to some extent, determined in proportion to the number of applications from that area of the world.
Congratulations to those who have been selected. At the same time, we thank those who applied and sincerely regret that they, too, could not be included.
