The Continuing Scholars Award of up to $2,500 will be awarded to Arlington educators to support personal and professional enrichment experiences that, in turn, benefit students.
The program will fund experiences sponsored by professional organizations, universities and institutes, such as conferences, conventions, non-credit courses/classes, educational expeditions/trips, seminars, and workshops. Awards can be used to take training that grants PDPs, but only after exhausting the district’s allowance for such trainings. If approved, CSAs used to earn PDPs will be for a maximum award of $1,000.
Continuing Scholar Awards cannot be used to pay for independent research/study projects, nor courses leading to degrees or certifications/licensures.
