In summer 2015, the NATS Foundation announced a new opportunity for independent teachers. Thanks to a significant gift from Joan Frey Boytim, the Foundation will be awarding $1,000 to one NATS member from each of the 14 NATS regions to attend the NATS National Conferences. It is designed to recognize and support independent teachers who do not hold full or part-time teaching positions in a college or university.
Up to FOURTEEN fellowships will be awarded.
February 1, 2018. Online applications with all required materials must be complete by the deadline date. Late entries will not be considered for the award.
In order to be eligible, ALL of the following requirements must apply:
Recipients will not receive the funds until after the conference and will be required to write a short essay detailing their experience in order to receive disbursement of the funds.
Application will be available winter 2016.
