Scholarship opportunities

We have several partners offering scholarships for qualifying teachers to attend the WindSenators Training this year. We are actively looking for more sponsors - and hope to have more scholarship opportunities available soon. Please contact KidWind Director Michael Arquin (michael(at)kidwind.org) if you are an organization interested in sponsoring a WindSenator!

KidWind Scholarship (any state is eligible)

KidWind is offering one full scholarship to the WindSenators training this year. We will select one teacher based on their experience, qualifications, and our geographic needs for WindSenators. This scholarship will cover full tuition to the WindSenator Training. Recipients will need to find other support for transportation to and from the training in Saint Paul, MN.

Department of Energy (any state is eligible)

The Department of Energy (DOE) is offering partial scholarships ($1000) for educators that live or work in the US. We will select five teachers based on experience, qualifications, and our geographic needs for WindSenators. If you receive this scholarship you would be responsible for $500 in tuition and transportation to and from Saint Paul. Learn more about the DOE program here.
