Technology Staff – PD Scholarships

Technology Staff – Professional Development Scholarships


ECMECC is pleased to announce the availability of up to 17 scholarships, up to $300 each to support professional development activities for technology directors, coordinators, and staff in all ECMECC member schools. Scholarship recipients must have a direct, assigned role in support of technology in the district. The scholarships may be used to pay expenses to attend relevant conferences, workshops, or other professional learning activities or purchase materials or subscriptions that provide relevant professional learning opportunities.

The scholarship will be paid to the district as a reimbursement for actual expenses incurred (or a portion of the actual expenses up to the $300 limit) so all arrangements must be made by the employee/s and their resident district. (ECMECC can NOT pay individuals directly) Districts are responsible for any costs beyond those approved for the scholarship. See details below and use the link provided to complete an online application. Limit one scholarship per staff member. Application and selection of recipients will be made on a rolling basis each school year and continuing until all available funds have been expended. Applying for a scholarship is not a guarantee of receipt. ECMECC may limit the number of scholarships to any individual district and reserves the right to make final decisions on scholarship recipients. Scholarships should not be used to supplant existing local resources but should be used to provide additional opportunities for professional development to tech staff in the district.
