Continuing Scholar Award

The Continuing Scholars Award will be awarded to Arlington educators to support education experiences that will in turn benefit their students.

The Continuing Scholars Award will fund enrichment experiences that are beyond traditional required professional development. They could be in the form of expeditions, seminars, trips, workshops, or courses. All experiences should be sponsored by professional organizations such as universities, institutes, or other programs. Examples of appropriate experiences might include an Earthwatch expedition, a language course in a foreign country, a Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute, a Primary Source study tour, etc.
Independent research and study projects, courses for advancing degrees or certifications, and graduate classes are not eligible for funding. Conferences and conventions are not eligible for funding.
Any Arlington Public Schools educator who has worked for the district for at least three calendar years and is returning to the district in the following year is eligible to apply.
