The WorldCALL 2008 Conference will bring together experts and practitioners in Computer-Assisted Language Learning from around the world.

One of the goals of WorldCALL is to provide as many scholarships as possible for professional development to those who are working with CALL is developing countries so that they can benefit from the exchange of ideas and come into contact with leaders in the field.

Scholarship awards include:

Return air transportation (economy class) from current residence to Fukuoka, Japan.
Accommodation during the conference.
A daily allowance for miscellaneous expenses.
Scholarship recipients are expected to pay for their own expenses from their home to the nearest airport.
Arrangements for air transportation (e-tickets) will be made by the scholarship committee on behalf of the awardees. Recipients are expected to return to their point of departure within a period of 10 days from the time that they left.
Criteria for scholarships:
Each recipient must

speak English fluently
not have sufficient funds to afford to attend WorldCALL without scholarship aid.

be a native of, and currently be residing in a country that is NOT considered to be a "High Income Economy" by the World Bank.

have made a significant accomplishment towards the implementation or development of CALL or ICT for language learning, in either research or practice.
not have received a grant for a previous WorldCALL conference.

Application for a scholarship is NOT tied to having a presentation accepted for WorldCALL. All scholarship recipients, however, will be asked to participate in one or more panel discussions or other events during the conference.
