TEC21 Workshop Program Scholarships Now Available
LCEF will award need-based scholarships for the 2018/2019 TEC21 Workshop Program to Nebraska district schools experiencing financial hardship. LCEF strongly supports the work TEC21 is doing to support, encourage and equip Lutheran educators.
Workshop seats are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications are due by February 16. Follow the links below to apply for assistance and reserve a seat:
1) Complete this form
2) Register your teacher.
A review committee will determine where to award financial assistance. The average scholarship amount, based on need, will be approximately $500. In exchange for this financial support, LCEF requests that congregations, schools, leadership and participants would support and promote LCEF in every way possible. Nebraska District LCEF Vice-President Nathan Meier will be in contact with you to coordinate those efforts and share resources. Applicants can expect to receive an “approval” or “denial” email from Candi Menze at the district office by April 30.
NOTE: We recognize that your commitment to having a teacher participate in the program might hinge on receiving a scholarship and, in some cases, receiving approval from your school board.
