TEA Travel Grants
Support for travel to a limited number of professional meetings is available to TEA
parcticipants. The intent of
the grants is to encourage parcticipants to present the TEA
program to the educational and research community to increase community
awareness of TEA.
Key to the success of the TEA program is the demonstration of
ways to introduce and incorporate TEA in the traditional classroom curriculum.
Up to $600 per meeting per individual (less is fine, too!)
Excludes NSTA National meetings and TEA
Applications may be submitted any time
