Fund for Teachers 2017-2018: Time to Apply!
Fund for Teachers offers an extraordinary opportunity for EL Education network teachers, and is one of our oldest and most beloved parter organizations.
Teachers can receive generous funding for self-designed summer PD ($5K for individuals, $10K for teams). The application window is open October 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018 and EL Education's FFT Coordinator Sarah Boddy (firstname.lastname@example.org) is eager to help EL Education teachers craft and submit excellent, fundable proposals.
You can get inspired by our 2016-2017 FFT Fellows here.
On Fridays while the application window is open, we'll be posting links to stories of their summer learning journeys and the impact on their teaching. These stories are beautiful and meaningful in their own right, but we certainly hope they also prompt the question: where will YOU go?
