ELATE Early Career Presenter Scholarship - National Council of Teachers of English

ELATE Early Career Presenter Scholarship

The ELATE Early Career Presenter Scholarship is open to new teachers and retired ELATE mentors at every grade level and type of school. Six scholarships to attend NCTE’s Annual Convention are granted each year by ELATE to teachers who are in their first to fifth year of full-time classroom teaching and who present in an approved session at the NCTE Annual Convention. The award—including complimentary convention registration—is also available to emeritus ELATE mentors who will be presenting in an approved session. Special consideration may be given to applicants from the NCTE Annual Convention host city.

Additional selection criteria include:

  • Representation from various areas (urban, suburban, exurban, rural, etc.);
  • Diverse school populations (language/culture);
  • One emeritus level member for every two new teachers; and
  • No candidates with connections to Commission officers.

The deadline to complete the application form below for the November 2024 NCTE Annual Convention is September 1, 2024. Recipients will be notified by late September 2024.
