Conference Scholarships

PAEE is pleased to offer several scholarship programs to support environmental educators interested in attending the annual conference. Scholarship funding is limited, so we encourage interested individuals to submit scholarship materials along with their registration form as soon as possible.  All scholarship recipients are expected to volunteer for a minimum of 1 hour during the conference.  

Ed Silcox Environmental Education Scholarship

Educators experiencing financial hardship are eligible to apply for this scholarship.  Scholarship recipients will receive a 50% reduced registration fee. In extenuating circumstances, a greater portion of the registration fee may be covered. Scholarship funds may not be applied to lodging.

Kathleen Lydia Paul Memorial Scholarship

Applicants must be entering the EE Certification program, attend the full conference, and attend the workshops offered that are part of the EE certification program. This scholarship covers the full cost of conference registration. Scholarship funds may not be applied to lodging.

Conference Scholarships for Pennsylvania K-12 Teachers or Administrators

Conference Scholarships for Pennsylvania K-12 Teachers or Administrators: In partnership with PAEE,  Stroud Water Research Center is pleased to announce that multiple Pennsylvania K-12 teachers and/or school administrators will be awarded stipends to attend the 2024 Conference. Stipends are available as part of the professional development and outreach initiatives of the NOAA funded (Grant #NA17NMF4570274) Pennsylvania Environmental Literacy Task Force and Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEE) Programming Capacity Building project.

Deadline to apply is December 15, 2023. We plan to notify selected individuals by the first week of January. Awardees should register for the conference ASAP.  Stipends will be paid after attending the full conference event. Awardees will need to complete a short post-conference online survey in order to receive their stipend.
