The Austin Council of PTAs will be offering two scholarships to assist in financing the attendance of a local PTA member to the Texas PTA Summer Leadership Seminar in 2018. This scholarship is given to assist local PTAs in receiving the necessary training to perform their positions.
Who can apply? Any 2018-2019 elected executive officer of an active PTA within the Austin Council.
When to apply? Applications must be emailed on or before May 8th (note: a confirmation email will be sent from ACPTA to confirm receipt). Recipients will be notified by June 1, 2018.
How much is the scholarship? Up to $500 per applicant* to cover registration and travel fees, as stated in the AISD travel reimbursement policy.
Decision Criteria: Scholarships will be awarded based on the perceived benefit of the local PTA from the applicant’s attendance and the financial need of the PTA (not the individual).
* A check for the full amount of the event fee, plus reasonable hotel and transportation costs will be made payable as specified under “Scholarships” in the Texas PTA Treasurers Resource Guide. This may be done upon receipt of proof of attending and receipts from hotel are received. Travel expenses will be approved based on the AISD travel reimbursement policy.
