SAME offers a $400 scholarship for the NMEA Annual Conference in July of each year. For 2015, SAME will support two scholarships – one for a K-12 educator and one open to any member who has not had a scholarship in the last three years.Scholarship
awards are based on financial need and involvement with SAME.
As an applicant, you must be a current member of SAME at the time
of application. The scholarship covers costs towards the conference
registration. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation,
lodging, and meals. You are expected to participate in the full
conference, taking advantage of all conference sessions and field
experiences offered. You will be requested to submit an article
about your conference experience to the SAME newsletter, Wavelengths,
and to the SAME website within one month after the conference.
If awarded a scholarship, you will not be eligible for a scholarship
from SAME for two subsequent NMEA annual conferences. If you decline
to attend the conference, the scholarship will be forfeited and
can not be applied to other conferences.
