Teacher Scholarship Application


Available Awards
The number of teacher scholarships awarded will depend on the total number of applicants. Teacher scholarships are available for up to $500.

Teacher Scholarship Funding Options
Tuition, books, conference or workshop registration fees, or travel expenses to professional development activities.

Teacher scholarships are available to all educators in Arkansas. Awards are competitive. ASTA members receive additional weight in the scoring rubric.
ASTA requests that scholarship and grant winners wait three complete grant cycles before again applying for an ASTA Teacher Scholarship or Classroom Grant. For example, if a teacher wins an award during the Spring 2011 competition s/he would be eligible to apply for the program during Spring 2013 competition. This policy is effective on January 28, 2011. Thank you for your cooperation.
