Financial Support for Attending MCTM Spring Conference-Deadline 2/10/16
Would you or a team from your district like to attend the MCTM Spring Conference in April but don’t have enough funding from your district? The MCTM Foundation funds grants up to $550/participant to assist early- to mid-career teachers in attending the conference. Funds can be used for registration, lodging, mileage, reserve teachers, and food and are paid as reimbursements with appropriate receipts or invoices. You can apply individually or as a team. Teams are 2 or more people from the same school, district, or region of the state. If you share a room or car pool, teams can maximize the grant funding. And coming with a colleague or team gives you a chance to discuss what intrigued you at the conference! You need to be an MCTM member or sponsored by a MCTM member to apply.
More information and the application directions and individual or team cover sheets are available at www.mctm.org/foundation.php. You can also go to www.mctm.org and click on either “Grants and Scholarships” or “MCTM Foundation”.
Deadline for grants for this year’s conference is fast approaching – apply by 2/10/16 to be considered.
