Fund Grants for New Teachers

KSTF supports its fellows by providing grant funding for materials, professional development and leadership activities. Here are a few examples …

MATERIAL GRANTS
KSTF fellows apply for grants to fund technology and supplies. Examples include technology to support flipping their classrooms, materials to build a school garden, and kits for hands-on instruction about proteins and gene expression.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Our fellows not only receive professional development from our program, they also receive funding to continue their education through summer courses and seminars. These opportunities range from new teaching methods and tools to extended content knowledge to professional conferences.

LEADERSHIP GRANTS
We also support our fellows with a variety of leadership opportunities. Fellows can lead workshops for other teachers at their schools or for KSTF fellows.
