Apply online for the LGBTQ+ Safety in Schools Grants and Scholarship Program in Honor of Guy DeRosa by end of day Dec. 14, 2018.
Click here for criteria and eligibility details on the program, which awards grants up to $2,500 for projects and presentations that promote understanding and respect for LGBTQ+ persons and support LGBTQ+ safety in public schools. These grants are to be used directly with students.
The scholarship program supports self-identified LGBTQ members enrolled in a teacher/counseling credential or graduate program who are pursuing a career in public education and who understand the importance of LGBTQ educators as role models in public schools.
This program was renamed in 2009 in the memory of CTA member and educator Guy DeRosa, who was a lifelong advocate for civil and human rights and LGBTQ+ issues.
Deadlines are coming soon for many of CTA’s major scholarship, grants and awards programs–don’t miss out on these opportunities and benefits!
