Note: we intended to offer three courses in 2020 and hope to do so in Summer 2021. This summer, we offered Biotechnology: The Basics on-line. Please see the details below.
Recognizing that funds for professional development are limited, there are no course fees and stipends are provided to successful applicants. Stipends are $100 per day for each course. The registration form for each course will include a section designed for applicants to upload a letter that details interest in the course.
We view the provision of stipends as a way of further collaborating with the teachers we serve. This financial support is received with the provision that content covered in the course or workshop will subsequently be incorporated into recipients’ course materials; shared with students and colleagues; and, documented in the form of a report submitted to us upon completion.
Many thanks to the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium, a member institution of the national network of Space Grant Consortia funded by NASA’s National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, for Aerospace Outreach Program funding to support these efforts!
