Tuition and Scholarships

SCHOLARSHIPS

Matching Grants
Matching grants are available each year for American history teachers who work at the elementary or secondary school level in any public school in the United States. If the school/district will fund one teacher, Colonial Williamsburg will provide the tuition and transportation for another teacher from the same school or district. Both teachers must: 1) apply separately and list each other on their applications, and 2) work through the process with and confirm matching funding from the school/district.

Individual Scholarships

Individual scholarships are available each year for American history teachers who work at the elementary or secondary school level in any public school in the United States. These scholarships are the result of the generosity of many Colonial Williamsburg Foundation friends, their deep commitment to and respect for teachers, and their understanding of the teacher’s role in educating the citizens and leaders of tomorrow.


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT OKLAHOMA: Each year, scholarships are available for Oklahoma fifth- and eighth-grade teachers in Oklahoma. Applications for the week-long Oklahoma scholarships must be submitted directly to the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, the coordinating institution for the state. The 2023 Oklahoma scholarship application will open approximately November 1, 2022, and will be available at https://www.ofe.org/colonial-williamsburg-teacher-institute/
