Williamsburg Travel Grants for Teachers

The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History is funding small grants for high-school teachers to attend the joint conference of the Society of Early Americanists and the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 7-10 June 2007.

The SEA's announcement says:

These mini-grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to the following criteria: 10 grants of $300 each will be available to high school teachers, with preference given to applicants who live outside the northeastern seaboard area and who receive little or no funding from their institutions. For more information and grant application forms (PDFs), please visit the SEA's website.

(Please note that we are looking into the possibility of offering in-service credits for teachers who attend this conference.)
