Successful applications will seek to make significant use of Extempore’s capabilities for world language teaching and learning. Support will include free licenses of Extempore for the grantees and their learners, as well as honoraria for the applicants. Additional resources are available for materials and travel to conferences or professional association meetings as a presenter about the awarded project.

What Do Grantees Receive?

  • Extempore will provide free licenses to the grantees and their learners for the duration of the project.
  • The maximum total grant award amount per project is $3,000 (exclusive of the value of Extempore licenses).
  • Honoraria are awarded up to $500 for the year 2024 and another $500 for the year 2025 (with a maximum of 2 people per grant, so a total of $2,000 per award).
  • Travel is reimbursable with receipts and includes hotel, transportation, registration, and meals when presenting at a conference or professional meetings about the project (presentation must take place within a year of the end of the grant period). These expenses are capped at 50% of the total award (up to $1,500).
