2013 TIE Stipend Program

The Innovative Education Grants Program under direction of the TIE Board of Directors has fifteen $800 stipends to offset much of the cost of educator attendance at the June 2013 Conference—iLearn, iLead, iInspire. This grant may only be applied to the cost of 2013 conference registration and lodging at Copper Mountain Resort. After paying $330 for registration, recipients can use the remaining $570 to pay for most of their lodging at Copper Mountain Resort, meals that are not included in the conference registration, and travel expenses. Any expenses beyond the $800 grant must be covered by the stipend recipient.

TIE Stipend Goals:

1.          Support conference attendance for 15 educators. Recipients must attend the entire conference. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate compelling personal learning goals, a desire to share their learning with their colleagues,  and financial need.

2.          Increase the educational technological capacity in schools as documented by the recipient’s school administrator.

3.          TIE will evaluate the success of the Stipend Program by the recipient’s responses to the post stipend survey; publicity within the school, district and/or community and by sharing stipend products on school, district or other online repositories, or digital media.
