College of the Atlantic offers scholarships for Maine educators

College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor is offering a number of partial scholarships this summer to Maine educators who participate in the college’s graduate-level courses for K-12 teachers.

The college is offering one- and two-week courses (for two to four semester credits) on a wide range of subjects including geology, photography, biomechanics, climatology and climate change, Wabanaki studies, and supporting students with disabilities. Most courses have a field component, and all are taught at the college’s oceanfront campus in Bar Harbor.

Scholarships in the amount of $100 – $385 will be awarded as applications are received and until all available funds have been depleted. Teachers who are awarded scholarship funding will be given a personal discount code and a week to complete their course registration. The final deadline to receive applications, based on the availability of funds, is April 30, 2012.
