The VCTM Professional Development Grant Program is a one-time grant opportunity of up to $1,000 for two recipients who are members of VCTM.
The purpose of this program is to provide funding support to VCTM members who wish to attend workshops, institutes, or other in-service opportunities.
The funding for this grant can be used for registration, room and board, and transportation expenses. This program will not fund undergraduate or graduate courses or attendance at VCTM or NCTM conferences.
The application requires that applicants attach a short explanation of why the applicant wishes to attend the workshop, institute or in-service opportunity and how it will benefit the applicant’s classroom. Applicants should submit a copy of the workshop, institute or in-service announcement.
In addition, applicants should submit a specific budget request.
If awarded, the applicant will share their knowledge with the VCTM membership by writing an article for the Virginia Mathematics Teacher and/or presenting at the VCTM annual conference.
Funding will be reimbursed after the awardee has attended the event and submitted receipts to the treasurer of VCTM.
Applications for the 2017 grant are due by February 1, 2017. Download the application form here.
