Program cost

The facilitation, materials, and supports cost $2,000 per participant, across all four programs. OSLN is seeking funding that could potentially provide scholarships for this program.

In previous years, the network has offered scholarships to some teachers who otherwise would not have been able to attend thanks to support from, Battelle, and the State of Ohio. Scholarships are made available first to participants serving economically disadvantaged students, diverse student populations, or schools serving rural communities.

Interested educators should sign up today and apply when applications open to be considered for the maximum potential financial aid.
