Workshops and Meetings Award: ILTA aims to promote high standards of professionalism in language testing and assessment practice. One way of carrying out this mission is to encourage workshops and meetings where language testing experts educate and train teachers, test developers, and others, including policy makers, principals, and even test takers in key skills and knowledge in language testing/assessment, and discuss topics and issues in language testing practice with the various users of language tests.

ILTA's grant funding for workshops and meetings is not simply to support meetings between language testing professionals, but instead focuses on supporting opportunities to diffuse knowledge among a wider group in different parts of the world. The aim of a workshop/meeting should be to promote understanding, familiarity, and knowledge of language testing issues and practice among various groups of test users. It is expected that the award will be used as 'seed' money to organise such a workshop/meeting and, ideally, to establish a permanent local organisation that will conduct further practical activities in language testing in the future, especially in places in need of language testing expertise.

Grant funding of US$ 3,000 for carrying out an approved workshop/meeting.

Those eligible to apply are individual language testers, teachers and others representing various types of institutions such as universities, research institutes, schools and testing organisations. Applicants must be ILTA members or, in the case of joint applications, at least one applicant must be an ILTA member. (In cases of extreme financial hardship the membership costs for ILTA may be included as part of the proposal, but a justification is needed in such a case.)
