National Conferences on Science Education
Preservice and New Teacher Scholarship
NSTA is providing a limited number of scholarships to cover the conference registration fee. Recipients of this scholarship are responsible for paying travel, accommodation, and other expenses associated with attending the conference. Scholarship funds are limited.
The scholarship covers the registration fee for the NSTA National Conference on Science Education in Denver, March 20-23, 2023. Hotel and travel are not included as part of the scholarship.
The intent of the scholarship is to support educators who could not otherwise attend the NSTA conference due to funding limitations to take advantage of this premier professional development opportunity.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
- Preservice teacher, or
- Be a new teacher who is in their first five (5) years of teaching at a preK through grade 12 institution
- NSTA member or have a complimentary NSTA account
Priority will be given to applicants who
- have an NSTA membership
- are conference presenters (those who have submitted proposals)
If your district has committed to funding your registration, please do not apply.
Applications will be accepted until the scholarship funds have been exhausted through January 19, 2024. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and in the order they are received.
No, NSTA will not refund registrations that have been pre-paid. If your school or district has committed to funding your registration, please do not apply. The scholarship is intended for those educators who do not have financial support for registration.
If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive an email from NSTA with registration instructions.
