WINDOWS ON THE WORLD (WOW) TRAVEL GRANT Teachers Travel the World for Students!
What are WOW GRANTS?
The Windows on the World (WOW) travel grant provides a teacher (or teachers) with up to $3,500 to complete an educational travel experience to a domestic or international destination. The experience is expected to enhance the teacher’s classroom skills, expand curriculum options and benefit students. When possible, the teacher’s gained skills and knowledge should also be shared with their school/district peers.
The Windows on the World (WOW) travel grant is sponsored by The Hiatt Family Fund of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado. Jeff and Mary Hiatt committed to the grant program as a way to extend their gratitude to the teachers who were so influential in the lives of their children as well as to recognize and honor the exceptional work of all teachers in TSD.
The intent is for the teacher to experience a subject matter in another culture and bring that experience back to Thompson School District (TSD), enhancing the teacher’s classroom skills and/or curriculum and benefiting the teacher’s students. Travel must be completed after school has ended in the spring semester and before the teacher’s contract begins in the fall semester. PreK-12 classroom teachers at a public school located within the boundaries of Thompson School District will be eligible.
When do I apply for a WOW GRANT?
The 2019 WOW GRANT application window will open in late fall of 2018.
