Established thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor to The POGIL Project, the goal of this scholarship fund is to increase the number of POGIL practitioners among rural high school STEM teachers in Washington State. The scholarship award will include registration, on-campus lodging, and meals at the 2017 POGIL Northwest Regional Workshop, and a reimbursement of up to $435 for travel expenses to and from the workshop. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on meeting eligibility criteria, demonstrating a commitment to student-centered learning and collaboration with other teachers, and available funding. A limited number of scholarships are available, so apply ASAP!
