Scholarships for Teachers in Grades K-12

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, a limited number of scholarships are available to assist teachers (grades K - 12) in attending the programs for teachers at the 2011 ASP Meeting. Please note that these scholarships are available only to U.S. teachers who have or have been offered full-time employment as teachers in the 2011-2012 school year.

Before you apply, we encourage you to read the pages that describe our sessions for teachers:

How the Scholarships Work:

  • You are welcome to register for the weekend workshop and any or all of the six three-hour short courses Mon, Tues, and Wed.
  • Each session has its own registration fee (as shown above).
  • If you are approved for a scholarship, we will reimburse you for:
    • a. half the cost of the total of registration fees for sessions you attend (up to $167.50),
    • b. any travel expenses up to $100 (with receipts)
  • Mileage is paid at the rate of 50 cents per mile (as part of the travel expenses)
  • All scholarship money will be paid to you after the meeting, once we have verified your attendance and received receipts from you.
