Second round of application reviews is coming up! Get applications in before 2/26 to qualify for scholarships.

We’re super-excited to be completing reviews of our first round of applicants!  Soon we will begin to award scholarship funds. Educators must have applications submitted by February 26 to be considered for our 10-50% tuition awards. Standard applicants-we will continue rolling admissions, but funding will start to be offered this month.

Second round reviews are currently scheduled for the week of March 5, but sooner if we can. We only need what belongs in SlideRoom to review your application with the committee, so that should be your priority.  We will need the rest of the materials to render a final decision, however. See the Application Guides for detail.

Take the opportunity to jump online next week with Chair Nathan Fox to ask questions or run an idea for your application assignment by him. We are here to help you. Sign up here.
