Research Grants

Three of TIRF’s main goals are (1) to implement a research and development program that will generate new knowledge and inform and improve the quality of English language teaching and learning; (2) to promote the application of research to practical language problems; and (3) to collect, organize, and disseminate information and research on the teaching and learning of language. To that end, the Foundation has supported grant-funding initiatives in three categories: The Doctoral Dissertation Grants, the Sheikh Nahayan Fellowships, and the Priority Research Grants. Our research priorities are also linked to below.
