Teacher Scholarship Program

Providing Curriculum and Professional Learning Scholarships to Educators

Thanks to contributions from generous donors, Collaborative Classroom is delighted to award curriculum and/or professional learning to more than 1,000 educators through our Teacher Scholarship Program.

Each scholarship covers the entire cost of the program (including shipping) or professional learning.

Impact of the 2022 Teacher Scholarship Program

The inaugural Teacher Scholarships were awarded in Spring 2022:

  • 375 scholarships were awarded
  • 10,000+ students will be impacted over the 2022–23 school year through the use of the awarded program materials

“In just five months [of SIPPS instruction], this fifth grade student made significant growth: from a kindergarten level in foundational reading skills to a third grade level.”
