SCHOLARSHIPS

Matching Grants

Matching grant are available for American history teachers who work at the elementary or secondary school level in any public school in the United States. If the school/district will fund one teacher, Colonial Williamsburg will provide the tuition and transportation for another teacher from the same school or district. Both teachers must apply separately and list each other on their applications. Please contact Jodi Norman at jnorman@cwf.org for more information.

Individual Scholarships

Individual scholarships are available for American history teachers who work at the elementary or secondary school level in any public school in the United States. These scholarships are the result of the generosity of many Colonial Williamsburg Foundation friends, their deep commitment to and respect for teachers, and their understanding of the teacher’s role in educating the citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
