ATTN TEACHERS: Educate 2019 Scholarships open for applications!

SIGNAL is pleased to announce Educate Scholarships for 2019. These scholarships will help teachers and schools access the professional development needed to deliver the Computer Science (Computational Thinking) aspects of the new Digital Technologies curriculum, and boost the capabilities of their fellow teaching team.

SIGNAL is offering up to 30 scholarships for 2019 study in EDEM626 Curriculum Implementation in Computer Science at the University of Canterbury as part of the innovative Educate programme, where teachers can upskill whilst still teaching. 

The scholarships are each worth $1000 and can be allocated towards course fees or paid to the recipient towards course related costs.

Applications will be assessed by the Educate team in conjunction with the SIGNAL Director. Successful applicants will be notified before the commencement of the programme . We will have staged notification dates of late-November, late-December and mid-February.

The scholarships are focused on building capability and diversity and so applicants are asked how the scholarship will help reach Māori, Pasifika and female students. The application also asks how this scholarship will help build leadership capability in Digital Technologies for your school/community.

The scholarships are open to all those enrolling in EDEM626 Curriculum Implementation in Computer Science and can be applied for online here:

We encourage you to start the UC Enrolment process as early as possible (and prior to announcement of scholarship awards as it can take some time to compile the require documentation).
