SCHOLARSHIPS

Matching Grants
Matching grants are available each year for American history teachers who work at the elementary or secondary school level in any public school in the United States. If the school/district will fund one teacher, Colonial Williamsburg will provide the tuition and transportation for another teacher from the same school or district. Both teachers must: 1) apply separately and list each other on their applications, and 2) work through the process with and confirm matching funding from the school/district.

Contact Jodi Norman at jnorman@cwf.org for more information.

Individual Scholarships
Individual scholarships are available each year for American history teachers who work at the elementary or secondary school level in any public school in the United States. These scholarships are the result of the generosity of many Colonial Williamsburg Foundation friends, their deep commitment to and respect for teachers, and their understanding of the teacher’s role in educating the citizens and leaders of tomorrow.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Applications for the week-long Oklahoma or Los Angeles, California, scholarships must be submitted directly to the coordinating institutions for those areas.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
