British Council: ELTRAs call for proposals

The English Language Teaching Research Awards (ELTRAs) 2023-24 are now open for proposals.

The ELTRAs are a scheme from the British Council inviting researchers to submit proposals related to English language teaching and learning. Potential proposals will be evaluated by a panel of British Council ELT specialists against their set criteria, including relevance, originality, impact and contribution.

This year, the awards are focussed on teacher development in four areas:

  • English language teaching in education: the teaching and learning of English in formal education systems where English is taught as a mandatory or elective subject.
  • English in a multilingual world: bilingual or multilingual education systems where English is the language of teaching and learning for all or part of the education system.
  • English for girls’ education: empowering girls, through agency and voice, who are out of school and/or living in socio-economically disadvantaged or isolated communities where language is a barrier for education.
  • Language for resilience: the role of English (and other languages) in giving a voice to young people and adults affected by conflict.

The ELTRAs aim to support high-quality, relevant and accessible research for ELT professionals worldwide.

Anyone wishing to submit a proposal must have a formal affiliation to a UK higher educational institution, and must include a letter from their institution. However, applications must also have an additional co-Principal Investigator who is national of, and based in, a recognised institution from an ODA-eligible country that is included as a research location in the study. Thereby, research should take place outside the UK, in whole or part.

The deadline to submit your proposal is Friday 12 January 2024.
