Apply to Attend the 2020 Summer Institute

Fees and Application Overview

Priority for attendance at the institute will be given to teams who are at least fifty percent people of color. We believe that our movement is made stronger, more effective, and most relevant for our learners and communities by the leadership of practitioners with a wide array of perspectives and experiences. 

In addition, our institute is most effective for teams from an organization or community who have mixed roles (e.g. librarian, teacher/educator, administrator/principal). Group size will be limited to four participants from a single community or organization.

Maker Ed offers the institute on a sliding-scale fee basis. If accepted to the Maker Ed Institute, you will be able to register for the amount you can pay. We do not have funding to support travel and housing costs.
