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.
Contact Teacher Development at [email protected] for more information.
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.
Please Note: National scholarship applications have closed. We have additional scholarships available for teachers from Los Angeles, CA, San Diego, CA, New Jersey, Virgina, and New York City/Long Island, NY.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT OKLAHOMA: The Oklahoma Scholarship application has closed.
Teachers who wish to pay their own tuition, or whose school districts wish to pay for them, to attend the summer 2024 program should contact [email protected].
