The American Turkish Society, with support from the Turkish Health and Education Foundation (SEV), is accepting applications for its Curriculum Development Grants program.
Deadline: Nov. 30.
Established in 2010, the program provides funds to elementary and secondary school teachers in the United States for the development of innovative curricula, projects, and other classroom activities about Turkey. Recently, the program has expanded to include teacher workshops in Turkey hosted by SEV at its schools in Istanbul, Izmir, and Tarsus.
Through the program, selected teachers will visit SEV Schools in Turkey, where they will be able to engage with teachers about their curriculum development work. Workshops will be arranged to facilitate this dialogue. Once selected, grantees will be free to develop their proposed projects without editorial input from the society. They will, however, be expected to participate in follow-up activities for evaluation purposes and will be asked to share any teaching plans, materials, and activities with the society for future dissemination.
Grants of up to $2,500 will be awarded to cover the costs of research, materials, speakers, and other expenses incurred by the school or the teacher. The society encourages all applicants to identify additional sources of funding where possible. Preference is given to schools that do not currently have Turkey-related programs in place.
All elementary and secondary school teachers are eligible to apply.
