Teach Away TEFL Scholarship

Teach Away is offering a fully-funded TEFL scholarship, open to applicants worldwide. The winner of the scholarship will be enrolled in our online TEFL course, the 120-hour OISE University of Toronto TEFL program.

A TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) certificate equips teachers with the skills and training for a successful career teaching abroad or online.

At Teach Away, we are on a mission to create a world where every student experiences the power of a great teacher. We hope this TEFL scholarship brings another great teacher into the classroom.

Applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Must currently be enrolled in a post-secondary program or have already completed a post-secondary program (in any subject)
  • Must not already hold an ESL certification (such as TEFL, CELTA, TESOL, or TESL)

Applicants will be required to submit a 500-word essay answering the question: "Why do you want to get TEFL certified and what will you do once you are a qualified ESL teacher?"

Responses will be assessed on how well the applicant answers the question and the quality of their spelling/grammar.

Application deadline: April 3, 2023 at 11:59 PM EST.

Winner of the scholarship will be notified via email by on April 26, 2023.
