Curriculum Development Grants deadline extended to June 3!
Posted by The American Turkish Society on 5/23/11
Curriculum Development Grants of The American Turkish
Society, initiated in the spring of 2010, offer funds to
elementary and secondary school teachers nationwide to
develop innovative curricula, projects and other classroom
activities about Turkey. Our aim with this grant program is
to increase knowledge about Turkey among teachers and
students and stimulate interest in teaching and learning
Grants will cover the costs of research, materials,
speakers, and other costs incurred by the school or the
teacher. The amount of grants will range from $250 to
$2,500, depending on the scope of the project, availability
of total funds, and the number of projects selected through
a competitive process. Preference will be given to schools
that do not currently have Turkey-related programs in place.
The American Turkish Society encourages all applicants to
identify additional sources of funding where possible.
Once selected, the grantees will be free to develop their
proposed projects without editorial input from The Society.
However, they will participate in follow-up activities for
evaluation purposes and will be asked to share any teaching
plans, materials and activities with The American Turkish
Society for future dissemination.
