Thanks to a newly established Teacher Travel Grant Program, funding is being provided to U.S. teachers (K-12) who wish to participate in the 99th American Meteorological Society (AMS) Meeting, which will take place 06-10 January 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona. In an effort to increase science literacy, AMS is committed to providing teachers with the opportunity to interact directly with scientists as an attendee at the meeting.

Recipients of these grants will participate in the 18th Annual AMS WeatherFest, have mentors to guide them through the variety of meeting conferences and events, as well as scheduled opportunities for one-on-one learning and networking experiences with scientists from all sectors of the weather, water, and climate enterprise. The 28th Symposium on Education is one of the learning opportunities for teachers at the Annual Meeting.

Covered Expenses

  • National applicants: Round-trip air travel (within North America) to the meeting, hotel room and tax, conference registration fee (excluding short courses), and per diem for meals.
  • Local applicants (within 150 miles of the host city): Travel compensation to/from the meeting venue, on-site parking, per diem for meals, and a small stipend to offset the cost of hiring a substitute for missed classes.

The deadline to submit is 12 October 2018. Recipients will be notified in early November.
