Today, we are pleased to announce AAE’s National Teacher Scholarship and Classroom Grant award winners for the fall of 2015.  These 15 teachers embody our core values with their dedication to the field and innovative initiatives. We couldn’t have chosen better!


The Association of American Educators Foundation is committed to offering individual educators various avenues for improving their effectiveness and student outcomes. The teacher scholarships provide teachers with funding to pursue additional teacher trainings, attend workshops, or specialized conferences. The classroom grants are offered to educators to supplement the costs of student-focused projects or activities. Both awards are available to all educators, regardless of location, school, or membership status.
