Internet2 Community Anchor Program Distance Learning Scholarship Program
Scholarship for Distance Learning Class
Any teacher from a K-12 school that is connected to Internet2 via a state or regional research and education network can apply to use the scholarship to pay for a one-on-one distance learning class from the Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC).
The Internet2 Community Anchor Program (CAP) distance learning scholarship program gives K-12 teachers free, one-on-one distance learning programs for their classes through the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC).
Any teacher from a K-12 school that is connected to Internet2 via a state or regional research and education network can apply to use the scholarship to pay for a one-on-one distance learning class from the CILC.
Teachers can apply for the scholarship regardless of whether their school is holding in-person classes or distance learning. CILC courses expand opportunities for students to interact and learn live from any of the CILC’s 175 content providers from around the world. Teachers can choose from any of the over 2,000 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 Adventures In Medicine & Science (AIMS) Program of Saint Louis University or learn about Aztec art, myths, and writing systems from the Cleveland Museum of Art, without ever leaving their classroom.
The scholarship application is open now, and the last day to submit an application is Friday, November 19. CAP will review applications, verify eligibility, and award scholarships and 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.
