Scholarship Application Information

Funding for professional development for teachers and enrichment for students such as doing science in the field is becoming increasingly difficult for schools. We also know that not all families have the opportunity to enroll students in science and math enrichment classes. Fermilab Friends for Science Education offers scholarships for teachers to attend summer workshops and to assist with field trip transportation expenses, and provides scholarships to families for student classes held at Fermilab. The 2020 scholarship application period will open on November 18, 2019. The application deadline is April 24, 2020. Applicants will be notified by May 22, 2020.

Teacher Workshops: Teachers may apply for a scholarship to attend all workshops except Modeling Workshops. Many allow them to receive free continuing education credits or for an additional fee, graduate credit. Some in the areas of physical science and prairie ecology involve curriculum units that they teach in the classroom and follow up with field trips to Fermilab.

Field Trip Transportation: While attending field trips is free of charge, we do know that some schools have difficulty funding transportation to Fermilab. Teachers may also apply for a scholarship for up to $250 in transportation reimbursement.

Science Adventures: Families may apply for family vouchers for free classes through the Science Adventures program. Vouchers may be used for summer or school year classes.

Apply online for the scholarships by April 24, 2020.

The scholarship application forms will be available until April 24 (deadline) for workshops held during summer 2020, field trips for the school year 2020-2021 and science adventures between June 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021. Applicants will be notified by May 22, 2020.
