The article offers information about the Professional Development (PD) Course Grant offered by TESOL Arabia giving its members financial aid with study courses. The grant considers the service given by the applicant to the organisation. This indicates that members with more services to the organisation may have greater chance of having successful application. Among the 2008-2009 PD Course Grants recipients are Abdelbasset Jeddi for his thesis "Explicit Teaching of L2 Vocabulary Through Technology," Justin Shewell for his paper "Vocabulary Acquisition and Teaching," and Ismail Fayed for his paper "Developing Researcher Competences."
