Fall 2013 Teacher Scholarship & Classroom Grant Winners from Wisconsin
posted by: Melissa | November 20, 2013, 06:18 PM   

Along with our national scholarships and grants, AAE also provides scholarships and grants in the areas where we have state chapters.  Today, we’re proud to announce the winners for our newest state chapter in Wisconsin, with 15 teachers each receiving funding for varied educational projects and pursuits.

We’re 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 in Wisconsin, regardless of membership status.

"We’ve been inspired by the innovative submissions," said AAE-WI Regional Membership Director Kristi Lacroix. "These scholarships and grants are a worthy investment in empowering educators and advancing student learning across the state of Wisconsin."

The AAE Foundation's Statewide 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, 2014. Click here to enter.
