UPDATE- ALL TEN SCHOLARSHIPS Have been Awarded
This is for TEXAS college and university educators:
Through a grant to the Poynter Institute, the Headliners Foundation of Texas is offering free tuition for the first ten Texas college and university journalism faculty members to register for TEACHAPALOOZA, a three-day technology education seminar from June 12-15 conducted by the Institute, which is located in St. Petersburg, Florida. TEACHAPALOOZA brings together up to 100 college journalism educators to help them learn new technology and new ways of teaching through “hands-on” learning to get re-energized and sharpen skills – focusing on turning data into journalism.
While the Foundation will pay tuition for up to 10 participants for the seminar, each participant will be responsible for the cost of airfare, hotel and dinner. Poynter Institute will provide lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Once you have applied, the Poynter Institute will provide you information about special low hotel rate deals they have arranged, with rates as low as $110 a night, including breakfast, internet access and shuttle transportation to and from the seminar site at the Poynter Institute.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please click on the following link to apply; the deadline to apply is May 19, 2015: http://about.poynter.org/training/in-person/djed-15.
At the conclusion of the seminar, you will be required to return a 1,000 word (or so) written assessment of the program to help the Foundation evaluate this opportunity for future funding.
