To support Environmental Educators in Arizona, Prescott College is offering a limited number of scholarships to offset conference registration fees. The scholarships support those with limited resources who may not be able to attend the conference without assistance. These scholarships are intended to help diversify participation in the conference and ensure inclusivity in our community.
Applicants can include environmental education professionals, K–12 classroom teachers and administrators, master volunteers (Naturalists and Gardeners), college/university faculty working full time in environmental education or a closely related field, and members of underrepresented audiences in the field of Environmental Education.
The scholarship provides $75 off of the conference registration fee. The deadline for scholarship applications is August 3, 2019. Applicants will be notified by August 8th, in time to register by the early-bird deadline of August 15.
