The WAFLT Scholarship for Professional Development is in honor of three extraordinary Wisconsin professors, Roma Hoff, Constance Knop and Irène Kraemer, who have trained countless teachers and students in world languages and the instruction of world language teaching methodologies. It is designed to help world language educators improve their classroom teaching skills by encouraging professional development such as study abroad, summer seminars, workshops, institutes, and short courses (credit-bearing or non-credit bearing).
