$1000 scholarship opportunity for your students

NEW for the 2023 academic year: Vista Higher Learning would like to reward exemplary K–12 and higher education students who plan to pursue a career in world languages teaching with a $1,000 scholarship. Current instructors are encouraged to engage with their most promising students who are―or who might be―considering a teaching career themselves by encouraging them to apply for the Vista Higher Learning Future Language Educator Scholarship.

Promoting a rich world languages program gives students who wish to teach in the discipline a solid foundation upon which to build a fruitful and rewarding career. To that end, Vista Higher Learning, the market leader for language learning solutions, will work with the top regional language associations in the US to award ten scholarships to students who show considerable potential in learning one or more languages and who plan to become language educators. Vista Higher Learning will partner with the following organizations:

  • Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (NECTFL)
  • Southern Conference on Language Teaching (SCOLT)
  • Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (CSCTFL)
  • Pacific Northwest Conference of Foreign Language (PNCFL)
  • Southwest Conference on Language Teaching (SWCOLT)

Each organization will award two $1,000 scholarships, one to a K–12 language learner and one to a college/university student. Application requirements are outlined in two rubrics designed to guide educators in their selection of a scholarship recipient:

Vista Higher Learning’s singular focus is developing print and digital solutions that meet the needs of all language learners—those learning a new language, improving a second language, or perfecting their native language. To that end, Vista Higher Learning provides an extensive collection of print, digital, and media learning materials in Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Chinese, with which you and your students may already be familiar. We also offer materials in English Literacy and Language Development for current and future instructors in the K–12 ELL classroom. Now, we’re taking the next logical step in promoting language fluency by offering scholarships to future language educators.

The Vista Higher Learning Future Language Educator Scholarships application can be viewed and downloaded at the links below. Scholarship recipients will be announced by each participating organization at their annual 2023 conference.
