Grants and Rewards for Teachers

Grants and Rewards

for Teachers and World Language Departments

World Language Department Grant

This grant is automatically provided to World Language departments in which two ($500), three ($750) or four ($1,000) language programs in the same school travel with six or more students on an Xperitas program in the same or alternate years. With this grant, Xperitas supports and recognizes the educational goals of World Language departments in schools that travel with Xperitas, and provides resources to enhance the language learning experience of all students in the World Language department, whether they travel abroad or not.

World Language departments have used this grant to purchase new classroom technology, to subscribe to international media and to provide opportunities for students to attend language-related performances and events off campus. Xperitas requests that recipients of this grant submit a report of how the money is used by August 31.

New Teacher Reward

In order to provide additional support and maximize the quality of the experience for first time Xperitas travelers, new teachers (for those traveling for the first time) will be offered a guide on their program at no additional charge. This would be limited to select published programs or groups with a minimum of 24 participants*. *Smaller groups may be combined to reach the necessary group size.

If a new group is participating in a program where a guide is already included or groups cannot be combined to reach the minimum size, the teacher will receive a $500 classroom grant after program completion.

$1,000 Referral Reward

In appreciation of teachers or others who refer their colleagues to Xperitas, a $1,000 Referral Reward is provided to a teacher when someone she/he has referred travels for the first time on an Xperitas program with six or more students. Colleagues or friends from the same language program within your school do not qualify as referrals.
