NSF Funding Supports Participation in Three Morning Workshops at this Year's Rendezvous

published May 6, 2019 1:38pm

We are excited to announce a new opportunity for funding toward participating in three morning workshops at this summer's Earth Educators' Rendezvous in Nashville, TN.

Thanks to a recently funded NSF grant, there is funding available to support participants in the following three workshops, geared toward incorporating active learning strategies into the classroom, to help offset participation costs:

If you are planning on attending one or more of these workshops, please read on for more details. If you know of colleagues who may be interested in this opportunity, please forward on this announcement.

Note: As these stipends are NSF-funded, to be supported by this funding, a participant must be either a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident, or in the employ of a U.S. institution. All participants are expected to participate in the entire workshop(s). Also note that if you receive funding for attending one of the workshops above or a travel stipend from this grant, that will count toward the $500 maximum travel stipend available from NAGT.

Registration Stipends:

$375 stipends available to cover the cost of a three-day registration fee for participants in the Designing Effective Lessons for your First Geoscience Course three-day workshop (July 15-17, 2019). These will be awarded to all participants who register for this workshop, unless they choose to waive the support. If you have already registered for this workshop, you will receive this stipend, unless you let us know you would like to decline it by contacting Katherine Ryker.

$250 stipends available to cover the cost of a two-day registration fee for participants attending either the Adapting Active Learning Strategies in Your Courses two-day workshop or the Measuring and Increasing the Level of Inquiry in Science Laboratory Activities two-day workshop (July 18-19, 2019). These will be awarded to all participants who register for each workshop, unless they choose to waive the support. If you have already registered for either of these workshops, you will receive this stipend, unless you let us know you would like to decline it by contacting Katherine Ryker.

Participants attending the entire week are eligible to receive a $500 stipend to offset the registration fee for attending both the three-day and one of the two-day workshops mentioned above. All awards will be distributed following the Earth Educators' Rendezvous, once participants complete the workshop(s).

Small Travel Stipends:

In addition to registration support, the grant is also able to help offset travel costs for a limited number of participants. Travel funds will be awarded on a needs-basis. These small travel stipends will be determined from an application, and decisions will be made by the workshop leaders. Consideration will be made for first-time participants. Awards will be distributed following the Earth Educators' Rendezvous, once participants complete the workshop(s). Any travel funds that are not utilized due to participants not attending the workshop(s) will be distributed to participants on wait-lists after the Rendezvous.
