    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
    about Turkey.

    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.
