Tuition and Scholarships

TUITION

2021 onsite sessions of the Bob and Marion Wilson Teacher Institute of Colonial Williamsburg are cancelled as part of the foundation’s continued effort to limit health risks associated with COVID-19.

In the fall, we will provide information on tuition and scholarships for 2022.


Teachers who wish to pay their own tuition, or whose school districts wish to pay for them, should contact teacherdevelopment@cwf.org.

Week-Long Institute Sessions: $2,200 (subject to change)

Three-Day Seminars: $1,250 (subject to change)

SCHOLARSHIPS

Matching Grants

Matching grants are available each year 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: 1) apply separately and list each other on their applications, and 2) work through the process with and confirm matching funding from the school/district.

Contact Jodi Norman at jnorman@cwf.org for more information.

Individual Scholarships

Individual scholarships are available each year 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Applications for the week-long Oklahoma scholarships must be submitted directly to the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, the coordinating institution for the state.

OKLAHOMA

Each year, scholarships are available for Oklahoma fifth- and eighth-grade teachers in Oklahoma. Details will be posted here when the 2022 scholarship information is available in the fall.
