The John Tsern Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Scholarship

The John Tsern TEFL Scholarship is open to new graduate students who have been accepted to APU’s field-based TESOL program and who are committed to teaching English in China during the two years of their academic program. This award recognizes Christian scholars who will perpetuate the mission of Azusa Pacific University during their academic studies and later as language educators.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time and should be in good standing with the program and university (not on academic probation or conditionally admitted).
