COFLT Mini Grants

COFLT awards two $500.00 grants each year to COFLT members in order to:

  1. provide incentive for teachers to develop new ideas and materials in their language;
  2. encourage professional growth;
  3. facilitate the sharing of effective teaching techniques and materials among colleagues; and
  4. aid in developing an appreciation of foreign languages and cultures in the community.

These grants are divided into two categories.

COFLT Professional Development Grant

As their name implies, Professional Development Grants provide funds for training and professional development.  The grant award may be used to pay fees for workshops, conferences (other than COFLT conferences, of course!), or other direct trainings.  The grant does not cover travel, lodging, food, or other incidental expenses.

COFLT Teacher Project Grant

Teach Project Grants fund implementation of specific projects that directly benefit the classroom or the community.  This might include purchase of materials or software necessary to implement the project, supply purchases, or production costs associated with project implementation.


After completion of the project, and within one year of notification of the award, recipients will be expected to submit a proposal for presentation at a COFLT conference or publish a 150+ word blog thread on the COFLT website.

All COFLT members are eligible to apply except: a) current members of the Board of Directors, b) members of the Mini-Grant Selection Committee, and c) anyone who has received a Mini-grant in any one of the three previous membership years.

Deadline: April 1.  Recipients will be notified of award status by May 1.  Payment will be made upon approval of the grant project.  ONLY applications submitted via the COFLT website will be considered for COFLT honors and awards.
