Association of American Educators Foundation Announces Fall 2011 National Teacher Scholarship & Classroom Grant Winners

Alexandria, VA - The Association of American Educators Foundation (AAEF) today announced its National Scholarships and Grants award winners for the fall of 2011, with 13 teachers each receiving up to $500 for varied educational projects and pursuits.

AAEF 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 graduate school, 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.

"AAEF continues to be inspired by the innovation and dedication these teachers have demonstrated in their applications," said AAEF Chairman Gary Beckner. "These scholarships and grants are an investment in empowering educators and helping students across the country."

The Association of American Educators Foundation is a non-profit charitable foundation that provides the public and public school teachers with educational information to help reform and improve the education of America's youth. The AAE Foundation's National Scholarships and Grants competition is held twice a year in the fall and spring and is not limited to AAE members. The deadline for the spring competition is March 1, 2012.
