Caucuses are Special Interest Groups within NCTE and the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) who come together on specific issues and actions.
2021 NCTE and NCTE Black Caucus Scholarships
We are happy to announce that NCTE, with generous support from Penguin Random House Education, invites applications for scholarships to cover the cost of 2021 Annual Convention registration as well as NCTE membership.
Purpose: To provide scholarships to cover the registration fee for NCTE’s Annual Convention and NCTE membership. (Scholarships do not cover any other Convention-related expenses.)
Eligibility: Open to Black literacy educators teaching or preparing to teach literacy, English, literature, language, or similar courses. Open to educators in both K–12 and higher education settings. Individuals living or working outside of the United States or in a United States territory are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to applicants who have not previously attended an NCTE Annual Convention.
Frequency and Number of Awards: There are 20 scholarships available for 2021. Recipients will be chosen by a selection committee from the NCTE Black Caucus. The full registration fee amount and a complimentary NCTE membership will be covered for each recipient. Partial scholarships are not available. (If you have already paid for registration and are eventually chosen to receive a scholarship, you will receive a refund.) Executive Committee members; individuals who have received other scholarships, discounts, or awards from NCTE during the 2021 awards session; and educators whose institutions provide professional development funding are not eligible to apply.
Application Requirements: Applicants must fill out the form below in full by Wednesday, October 13, 2021.

- Executive Committee members; individuals who have received other scholarships, discounts, or awards from NCTE during the 2021 awards session; and educators whose institutions provide professional development funding are not eligible to apply.

Recipients will be chosen and notified by the end of October 2021.
