TeachCS has opened applications for 27 “TCS TeachCS Fellowships” to send teachers to summer computer science PD. These fellowships are funded by the generosity of Tata Consultancy Services and several other private sector partners.
One fellowship will be awarded to a teacher in or near each of the cities in which Tata operates its innovative goIT program: Phoenix, Bloomington IL, Newark, Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale, Cincinnati, New York City, Bentonville, Chicago, Minneapolis, Jersey City, Saginaw MI, Denver, San Antonio, Dallas, Washington DC, Tampa, Indianapolis, Santa Clara, Seattle, Edison NJ, Des Moines, Columbus, Milwaukee, Hartford, Philadelphia, and Jacksonville.
Each award will be for up to $3,300 and may be used for tuition, travel, and/or teacher stipend to attend training in The Beauty and Joy of Computing, Mobile CSP, Thriving in Our Digital World, Exploring Computer Science, or Bootstrap.
Along with the “Computer Science for All Community Giving” program of Infosys and Donor’s Choose, TeachCS is one of two components to the private sector collaboration to expand private sector support of computer science teacher professional development announced and described in the January 30, 2016 White House Fact Sheet about CSForAll.
