Although the deadline for letters of intent for two of the available grants is rapidly approaching, the other grant program’s deadline is not until later this summer.

The TOEFL Committee of Examiners 2020 Research Program is intended to support research on topics related to the TOEFL iBT® test and the TOEFL ITP® Assessment Series. Letters of intent, which are optional, should be submitted via email to TOEFL_RC2@ets.org by April 19, 2019. Applications should be submitted via email to TOEFL_RC2@ets.org by July 15, 2019.

These grants are intended to support research related to the TOEFL® YSS assessments. In order to be eligible for either type of grant, interested applicants must submit letters of intent by April 19, 2019.
