The Teacher Education Department encourages our students, both graduate and undergraduate, to become active scholars and researchers. An initial step in this process is to attend a professional conference. In order to encourage student attendance at professional conferences, the Teacher Education Department is giving 10 awards of up to $250 each. The procedure for applying for these awards follows.
CONFERENCE ATTENDANCE AWARDS
Students who wish to apply for this award must write a letter of application that contains the following information.
- The name, date, and location of the conference that they will attend.
- The conference fee.
- An itemized list of additional travel experiences: airfare, hotel.
- Two to three paragraphs that address how attendance at this conference will be helpful to their growth as a scholar.
- The name of the sponsoring professor.
All letters of application are due to Dr. Kinney-Sedgwick no later than 5 P.M. on Friday, November 7. In the case of more applications than funds, awards will be decided by lottery. Only one award will be granted to a student.
