FOR TEACHERS - Deadline for program scholarships is March 15. 

Scholarships for Teacher Workshops & Transportation and Science Adventures


Funding for professional development for teachers and enrichment for students such as doing science in the field is becoming increasingly difficult for schools. 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, assists with field trip transportation expenses and provides scholarships to families for student classes held at Fermilab. Application deadline is March 15, 2013.
