TOEFL® Young Students Series Research Program: Research Grants — 2018 Call for Proposals

Educational Testing Service (ETS) is pleased to announce the Research Grants under the TOEFL® Young Students Series. Letters of Intent should be submitted via email to TOEFLYS@ets.org by April 21, 2017. For further information, please visit https://www.ets.org/toefl/grants/young_students_small_research_grants/.

Purpose
The TOEFL® Young Students Series (YSS) Research Grants are intended to support research related to the TOEFL YSS assessments (i.e., the TOEFL® Primary™ and TOEFL Junior® tests) as well as foundational research that promotes high-quality language assessment related to young language learners between ages 8 and 15. This year, priority will be given to proposals that address the topics identified in the research agenda below.
For the current grant period, ETS is able to provide funded researchers with a complete TOEFL Junior Standard test form and corresponding item-level data, including demographic information about test takers (for more details see here). Requests for research instruments and data for other ETS Young Students Series assessment products (e.g., TOEFL Primary) will be considered on a case-by-case basis and granted when feasible. ETS welcomes grant applications from researchers who plan to recruit participants and collect data locally in countries around the globe.

Please Note: Applicants for the 2018 cycle are required to submit a brief Letter of Intent containing a description of the project prior to the submission of a full research proposal (see detailed instructions below).

Eligibility: Researchers around the world who hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent doctoral-level research degree), have expertise in English language learning and assessment, and who are affiliated with an academic institution or not-for-profit organization.

Amount of grant: Up to US $50,000
