Calling K-12 Teachers and School Librarians: Apply for the Internet2 CAP Distance Learning Scholarship Program
By Stephanie Stenberg - Director, Internet2 Community Anchor Program
The Internet2 Community Anchor Program (CAP) has launched its third annual distance learning scholarship program intended to give K-12 teachers free, one-on-one distance learning programs for their classes through the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC). The scholarship application is open, and the last day to submit an application is Friday, January 13, 2023.
Any teacher or school librarian from a K-12 school that is connected to Internet2 via a state or regional research and education network can apply for a scholarship to pay for a one-on-one distance learning experience from the CILC. Teachers and librarians can apply for the scholarship regardless of whether their school is holding in-person classes or distance learning.
Courses from the CILC expand opportunities for students to interact and learn live from any of the CILC’s 200 content providers from around the world. Teachers can choose from any of the over 2,300 professionally delivered programs offered, all of which have been evaluated by teachers and can be sorted by topic or by recommendation.
Students can participate in experiences like dissecting a sheep’s brain to sharpen observation and analysis skills with experts from the Adventures In Medicine & Science (AIMS) Program of Saint Louis University, role-playing bullying scenarios led by a health educator from McMillen Health, or learning about Aztec art, myths, and writing systems from the Cleveland Museum of Art, without ever leaving their classroom. In total, CILC has delivered 113,000 virtual learning experiences – your class could be next!
The scholarship application is open now, and the last day to submit an application is Friday, January 13, 2023. CAP will review applications, verify eligibility, and award scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be chosen at Internet2’s sole discretion. Once classrooms have completed their CILC program, CAP may survey or interview teachers to learn about their experiences and share their stories via a series of social media or blog posts.
Last year, CAP awarded 31 distance learning scholarships to students all over the United States. Will your classroom be next? Review our Frequently Asked Questions and apply today!
