Thank for your interest in the Educator's Initiative Award. The 2014 application process is now closed. Please check back for 2015 opportunities in December.
The Educator's Initiative Award was designed to give educators the opportunity to travel at a specialized price on GCN programs and share their international experiences with their students. The Educator's Initiative Award is closed. Are you an educator that would like to have an immersion experience with GCN this summer and share your experience with your students next fall? Winners will be selected by March 7, 2014 and will be notified by March 14, 2014. Check out our submission requirements for more information!
To apply for the Educator's Initiative Award, please print to fill out this application and submit it by email to (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mail it to GCN's office. The application must be fully complete in order to be considered by the Selection Committee. If you would like flyers for your school, please email us and we'll be happy to send you copies for all the teachers in your school.
For all GCN trips, classes, and trainings educators may apply for Continuing Education Credits. Ten continuing education unit hours per week can be earned by participating on a GCN trip. It will be necessary, however, for you to seek pre-approval by your local continuing education committee. CEU Certificates of Participation will be awarded if requested. Participants will earn their CEUs by developing skills in the following areas: Trip Preparation (accomplished through readings and orientation), Developing Cultural Competencies (accomplished through community interaction and project participation) and Self-Development (accomplished through journals, group meetings and discussions, reflections).
