Study Abroad for Teachers - TLab

Thanks to our Branches -- their dedicated members, leaders and donors who provide over $140,000 in scholarship funds annually – we positively impact nearly 50 teachers and over 5,000 students nationwide each year.

Below is the information required to implement a TLab Fellowship program in your community:

How do we apply to participate this year?

Please register your branch using the 2022 TLab Branch Participation Form.  You will need to provide your application deadline, scheduled interview date, and the amount of your scholarship(s) in order to complete this form.

How does the TLab Scholarship Program work?
Review the 2022 TLab Branch Handbook for all pertinent information.

Encourage teachers in your community to apply for the scholarship! 
Edit the 2022 Sample Memo to Teachers included in the handbook and share with local school administrators, department of education, etc.

When interviewing scholars for summer 2022, they must complete the 2022 Branch TLab MediaRelease Form (coming soon) especially if you plan on photographing the scholars at a Branch event.
