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.
