Teacher Conference Scholarship
******** DEADLINE EXTENDED ********
Want to attend the MCTM Annual Conference and Institute this year in Traverse City to hear Margaret Heritage, Jason Zimba, and many others but finances are an issue? With cutbacks in school/district professional development monies, many more teachers are paying for PD opportunities from their own funds. The MCTM Scholarship Committee is excited to offer for the second year to MCTM members: $500 Teacher Conference Scholarships to attend the MCTM Annual Institute and Conference!
Any teacher who is an MCTM member is eligible to apply for the scholarship (except for current MCTM Board Members). Scholarship applications and guidelines can be found below. Applications are due on May 2, 2017, with recipients notified by May 20, 2017. Up to six (6) $500 scholarships will be awarded.
The application is made up of an information form as well as a brief, typed proposal (two pages maximum), a letter of support that describes your role in mathematics education (preferably from your current administrator), and confirmation that you are a current member. Details are available at the link above.
