The SEP Hutch Access Award provides financial support for teachers who either: 1) come from racial and ethnic backgrounds historically underrepresented in the sciences; 2) serve a large (>50%) student population of students from such backgrounds; and/or 3) face other significant barriers to access (for example, teachers who live in areas of WA state with limited access to scientific resources or who would otherwise not be able to attend our professional development session). We will provide a minimum of 2 scholarships in the amount of $3,000. If you would like to apply for this scholarship, please fill out the HUTCH ACCESS AWARD SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATION along with your application to the program. Awards will be announced by April 15, 2019.
