Scholarship Sponsors Needed

Help us make the 2024 Jump$tart National Educator Conference a reality!

All PreK-12 Teachers Attend on Scholarship

Teachers who attend the Jump$tart National Educator Conference attend on scholarship. Yes, all of them! And it’s possible because of the support we receive from our generous and committed scholarship sponsors.  Each $1,500 scholarship covers two hotel nights, six meal events, materials, and full registration for the conference ― enabling us to provide the conference experience to the teachers (and their students) who would benefit the most, regardless of their school’s or school district’s ability to pay.

Sponsor one teacher or as many as you like.  Select recipients yourself or let us select deserving teachers from our pool of applicants.  See details, below, or speak with our team to learn more.

Help Us Help Teachers

Each scholarship of $1,500 provides a classroom educator with full participation in the conference, including two nights at the Omni Louisville Hotel, and six meal events.

Scholarship Providers select their own recipients in any manner they choose.  Scholarship providers are asked to coordinate with Jump$tart as early in the year as possible and must confirm the number of scholarships they plan to provide no later than August 4, 2024.

Scholarship Sponsors simply make a donation to Jump$tart earmarked for NEC teacher scholarships. Jump$tart will select recipients and will administer the process.  Sponsors may provide us with geographic priorities for the selection of recipients and Jump$tart will make its best effort to fulfill the request, based on the pool of qualified applicants.

  • Scholarship Providers and Sponsors – $30,000 and Above
