This scholarship was set up by the FAAPI Executive Committee with funds generated by the FAAPI Conference itself. It aims to help a teacher or teacher educator from Argentina to attend and present at the FAAPI Annual Conference for the first time.

The award consists of:

  • Registration fee for the FAAPI Annual Conference
  • Three-day accommodation expenses in a three-star hotel (decided by FAAPI)

To qualify you must:

  • be a member of any of the FAAPI sister associations for at least one year. Your association must give evidence of this.
  • be a practising teacher or teacher educator in primary, secondary or tertiary education
  • have not previously presented at the FAAPI Annual Conference
  • have not applied for a scholarship, either the DFS or another scholarship by a sister association

Although the criteria for selection established by the Academic Committee will be fully respected, FAAPI EC will choose the most appropriate proposal considering the following guidelines:

  • how long the applicant has been a FAAPI’s Association member
  • how the applicant will benefit from attending the FAAPI Conference
  • how the applicant plans to share the experience among the members of his/ her local association

To be considered you must submit:

  1. Your proposal (What-worked on my class, Workshop or Paper) sent to the Academic Committee of the FAAPI conference, taking into account the deadline for the existing Call for Papers. This proposal must have been accepted by the Academic Committee prior to your application to the DF scholarship, and within 15 days thereafter.
  2. The Final Evaluation you received from the Academic Committee
  3. A 150-word Biodata
  4. Mention the FAAPI Conferences you have attended in the last 5 years
  5. Information on your membership by your Association
    One letter of recommendation (either from your Association committee members or colleagues), not necessarily in English.
  6. A Statement of Purpose: This should clearly answer the following questions:
    1. Why do you think you deserve the scholarship?
    2. How long have you been involved with the subject matter of this proposal?
    3. How did our Conference have an impact on your decision to present at FAAPI?
    4. How do you relate to your local Teachers’ Association?
    5. How do you plan to share your experience with your local Association (replication of the presentation, new presentation format, etc.)

The selection criteria will be based on:

  1. The positive evaluation by the Academic Committee
  2. Originality, completion, coherence, academic language level and information precision in the proposal and your Statement of Purpose.

An ad hoc committee from FAAPI EC will evaluate all the candidates’ submissions and decide on the winner of the scholarship based on the above criteria.

N.B.: In the event of two similar submissions by two different candidates, the criteria mentioned in this section will give weight to the presentation of the application, whether the presentation caters for a wide variety of public, the language used in the application, the pertinence and quality of future replications of the presentation.
Failing to submit one or more of the requirements may result in your application not being considered.


Send the information to the following emails:
