SIGCSE announced recently that it will again award up five grants to teachers in oder to help cover costs of attending SIGCSE 2018, which will be held February 21 – 24, 2018 in Baltimore, MD. The grant includes complimentary registration and up to $500 travel expenses. Teachers interested in seeking this grant will need to apply online by the October 16, 2017 application deadline.
Too often the thing standing between a teacher having a great idea and bringing that idea to life in the classroom is funding. Sometimes all that’s needed is just a little seed money to for materials or equipment to get a project off the ground. WeTeach_CS understands this, which is why we instituted the Mini-Grant award program with our first WeTeach_CS Summit in 2016 and expanding the program in 2017. Of course there are lots of grant and mini-grant type programs out there that teachers can apply to, but learning about them and tracking their various deadlines can be difficult. The folks at seem to understand this too, as they have created K-12 Grants Central. This online resource includes an updated calendar of upcoming grant deadlines, as well as a list of ongoing grants and related resources.
CSTA and Rolls Royce announce a scholarship to help K-12 teachers attend the CSTA Conference in Baltimore, Maryland this July.
