Fall Grants and Awards

Application deadline for the Fall awards: August 31st, 2017 @ 11:59 p.m.

Fall 2017 Grants & Scholarships

Each fall, the CCFLT presents three monetary grants to teachers. If you have an idea for a project for your classroom, please consider applying for these innovation grants! 

Two scholarships are awarded to new World Language teachers (in their first 3 years of teaching) to attend the CCFLT Fall Conference in October. 

In addition, due to lack of nominations for these annual Spring Awards, the Awards Committee is opening up nominations for the following awards to be given at the Fall Conference: 

  • Genevieve Overman Memorial Service Award (view application form)
    Honoring an individual for lengthy and dedicated service to the foreign language profession. This award is in honor of Genevieve Overman who served as the first CCFLT Secretary.


  • Kris Wells’ Memorial Creativity Award (view application form)
    Given to an individual who has inspired enthusiasm for language learning through unusual innovation and creativity in the foreign language classroom. This award is in honor of Kris Wells who served as CCFLT President from 1999-2000.


Procedures for Awards, Grants, Scholarships, and Contests

  1. All nominations and applications must meet all criteria and be submitted to grants_awards@ccflt.org by the deadline to be eligible for consideration.
