2022 NCTE and NCTE Black Caucus Scholarships
The Black Caucus of National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE) and the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) is an advocacy group of Black English language arts educators and scholars who are involved in the teaching and learning of communication skills. We are here to support each other in professional growth and solidarity.
NCTE, along with generous support from Penguin Random House Education, is happy to announce that applications are now open for the NCTE Black Caucus Scholarship. As part of our commitment to diversity, this scholarship is aimed at supporting Black Caucus members and making the convention more accessible for its members. These scholarships will cover the cost of 2022 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.)
Frequency and Number of Awards: There are twenty scholarships available for 2022. 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.)
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 US territory are eligible to apply. Additionally:
- Nominations on behalf of another person are not accepted;
- This scholarship cannot be combined with any other NCTE scholarships, discounts, or awards;
- Executive Committee members; Black Caucus leaders; individuals who have received other scholarships, discounts, or awards from NCTE during the 2022 awards session; and educators whose institutions provide professional development funding are not eligible to apply;
- Priority is given to applicants who have not previously attended an NCTE Annual Convention and to dues-paying members of the Black Caucus. Annual membership dues for the NCTE Black Caucus are $40 USD for faculty and $20 for students. Click here to secure or renew your membership;
