Professional Development Scholarship & Grant Opportunities
Agents and other educators are constantly learning – seeking new information that can be used to improve our programs and ultimately provide better opportunities for the youth that we serve.
The true value of Professional Development includes not only the benefit to the educator, but also the ultimate impact that it has on the audience served. For this reason, the TAE4-HA supports members in their pursuit of PD endeavors by providing encouragement and financial assistance.
Annually, the TAE4-HA Professional Development Committee awards approximately $1,200 in grants and scholarships to Association members.
New Member Scholarships: To promote new member participation in the TAE4-HA Annual Conference, up to 5 scholarships are awarded in the amount of the registration fee. Members with less than two years of experience, as of July 1, 2016, who have not previously attended the annual state conference, are encouraged to apply. Applicants must have a letter from the direct supervisor to upload into the form. (Recipients must attend the 2016 conference.)
Professional Development Grants: TAE4-HA also awards grants for graduate study, applied research, interstate or intrastate travel, educational conference/seminars, workshops and other worthy projects. Grants up to $550 may be awarded to individuals or groups based on the merit of their proposal. Applicants must have a letter from the direct supervisor to upload into the form.
The applications for each of the above opportunities must be received by July 1. Mark your calendars now to make plans to submit an application!
