Professional Development Award

The Cheng & Tsui Professional Development Award offers financial assistance to Korean language teachers, especially those new to the field, for attending training workshops, seminars, conferences, and other local, national, or international in-service learning experiences. The award may also be used to collaborate with a mentor teacher. Teacher training workshops and seminars attended by the applicant should be focused on pedagogy and issues of teaching and learning. The fund has designated an annual amount of $1,000 to be divided between at least two teachers each year.

Recipients are also asked to write a brief report after attending the event for which they were awarded money, summarizing their experience and what they learned.
