The Headway Scholarship is made possible through the generosity of John and Liz Soars.

“The setting up of the Headway Scholarship, over ten years ago, was our way of repaying teachers for the trust you have placed in our writing. The exceptionally positive response from scholarship winners, from so many countries, who have followed the ELT Teacher’s course at Exeter College, Oxford has been very gratifying indeed.”
