Description automatically generatedFor the last several years, NAAEE and their affiliates have helped Morpho Institute to spread the word to K-12 science educators about PD scholarships for our annual Educator Academy in the Amazon Rainforest.  

 

We have scholarships available for K-12 & informal educators!  Registration for 2024 is open and the deadline for scholarship applications is Dec. 1. Just a few spots left! 

 

We will also be opening up a brand new scholarship group for Diversity in Conservation Education in mid-October! To get an update when this application opens, click here!

 

It would help us greatly if you’d be willing again to spread the word to educators in your network and post it in your newsletter, website, listserv, and/or your social media outlets. The easy cut-and-paste information is below my signature, or feel free to share any of our social postings - @morphoinstitute .   

 

If you have any questions, please contact myself or our Director, Christa Dillabaugh - dire...@morphoinstitute.org. We have alumni from nearly every state in the US and I will be happy to put you in touch if you would like their perspective on the program.  

 

Many thanks!
