Teacher Quality Partnership Grant Program – Are You Ready to Apply? (Members Only)

Monday, April 23, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. EDT

With the passage of the omnibus in March providing continued funding for the Teacher Quality Partnership (TQP) grant program (administered through the U.S. Department of Education), there is potential for the Department to put out a call for new applications in the coming weeks.

This webinar will point you to Department resources to support you in building out your application, including what is required by law in Title II of the Higher Education Act, where the TQP program is authorized.

Current TQP grantees have been invited to participate in this AACTE members-only webinar to offer their expertise as you seek to apply for this program, which is the only federal initiative dedicated to strengthening and reforming educator preparation.

This webinar will include a presentation and time for Q&A. A recording will also be available in the AACTE Resource Library for future reference.

Presenter: Deborah Koolbeck, Senior Director, Government Relations, AACTE; TQP grantees invited

Panelist: Christina O’Connor, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
