Teachers of English language for a one year M.A. level study in the United Kingdom.

The Hornby Scholarship is a yearly scholarship provided to teachers of English language for a one year M.A. level study in the United Kingdom. This scholarship is offered by Hornby Educational Trust and the British Council in partnership to provide development opportunities for teachers, trainers and English Language professionals in transitional and developing countries. The Hornby Scholarship covers full tuition fees for a student pursuing a one-year full time Master's degree in an English Language Teaching (ELT) related subject in the UK.

The A S Hornby Educational Trust was established in 1961 by A S Hornby, an English language teacher in Japan, who authored the first Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary (OALD). The Trust supports the teachings of English as a foreign language through local partnership initiatives with the British Council and by awarding scholarships to English language teachers from developing countries and countries in transition. The Trust focuses on supporting key English language specialists, such as senior teachers, teacher-trainers, inspectors and material writers by offering MA scholarships through the British Council to enable them to study the English language and teaching theory and practice for an academic year in the UK. Graduates are then encouraged to use this knowledge to advance the teaching of English in their home countries.
