Faculty Development Grants for faculty seeing convergence opportunities in broadcast news or for time with a broadcast production firm or ad agency. 


The NATPE Educational Foundation invites you to spend

         part of your summer developing or refreshing your skills!

Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Faculty Development Grant.

The postmarked by deadline is February 16–earlier this year!

The Program allows teaching faculty to spend two — six weeks of the summer or a sabbatical semester “interning” with a TV station, cable system, broadcast or cable network, or program distributor to increase teaching effectiveness through a hands-on experience.

Applicants receive a grant of at least $500 per week during a summer placement at a media firm and travel funding, registration, meals and housing to attend the 2016 NATPE Conference.
