Grants and Scholarships
VCTM proudly supports the teachers who wish to continually improve their practice by attending conferences, continuing their coursework, or implementing innovative practice in their classroom. VCTM also supports future mathematics educators in the form of scholarships.
The Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics is offering Virginia mathematics educators a one-year grant worth up to $5000. This grant is designed to support educators who wish to create a meaningful, innovative project that enhances some aspect of the K-12 mathematics curriculum.
The purpose of this grant is to provide funding support to VCTM members who have not previously attended but wish to attend a regional or annual NCTM meeting. An award is also given to a VCTM member or non-member who wishes to attend a VCTM Annual Conference or VCTM Academy for the first time. One award of up to $500 is given to attend an NCTM event and two awards of up to $250 are given to attend a VCTM event. Applications are due in the Fall.
The VCTM Professional Development Grant Program is a one-time grant opportunity of up to $500. Two grants are awarded each year. The purpose of this program is to provide funding support to VCTM members who wish to attend workshops, institutes, or other professional development opportunities. Applications are due in the Spring.
VCTM supports the work of our local affiliates as they seek to strengthen their organization. We offer a $1,500 grant to support projects that build membership, promote innovative projects, offer professional development, implement new initiatives, or otherwise benefit mathematics teachers in their local area.
Each year, VCTM awards up to two scholarships of $2000 for college students interested in becoming teachers of mathematics. VCTM's objective in establishing this program is to unite the efforts of its members who seek to improve the teaching of mathematics. Follow the link above for more information.
