The Jump$tart National Educator Conference (JSNEC21) is an all-scholarship event. Jump$tart secures scholarship funds to enable classroom teachers from across the country to attend the conference at no cost to them. Even as PreK-12 financial education grows in popularity, schools and educators continue to struggle with restricted budgets and these scholarships often eliminate the remaining barrier to their participation.
Conference Underwriters – $50,000
Underwriters of JSNEC21 are Jump$tart’s partners in this event. Their logos are displayed prominently on the conference web page, conference app, participants’ tote bags, and customized hotel room keys. A representative of each Underwriter organization is invited to make welcome remarks and is given the opportunity to lead a breakout session. Underwriters receive all Sponsor Benefits, below, including preferred placement in the Exhibit Hall.
Each scholarship of $1,250 provides a classroom educator with full participation in the conference, including two nights at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, and six meal events.
Scholarship Providers select their own recipients in any manner they choose. Scholarship providers are asked to coordinate with Jump$tart as early in the year as possible and must confirm the number of scholarships they plan to provide no later than August 2, 2021.
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.
