Can You Help Me?

Maybe you don’t belong to one of the categories above but still need help.

At ICAL we’re open to suggestions. If you think that you – or your organization – would benefit from a scholarship to take our TEFL course and that afterwards the community where you work would benefit then do get in touch!

In the past we’ve given scholarships to all sorts of charities and schools in under privileged areas.

See also our page on charitable donations.

How Much are the Scholarships Worth?

The amount of our scholarships varies and are offered according to circumstances and situation. They begin at 15% discount but we look at who you are and how the community will benefit from your TEFL training.

How to Apply for a TEFL Scholarship

If you would like to apply for a part scholarship to take an ICAL TEFL course then please get in touch with us and we will be happy to talk over the options with you.

But please note that we will require all applications to be accompanied by official documentation. You must apply & be accepted for a scholarship BEFORE you register; sorry but we are not able to process scholarships after registration has been made.
