Summer Academy 2020

July 8-19 at the Hilton in the Walt Disney World® Resort, Florida


For Summer Academy 2019, Kagan awarded 19 scholarships in all for a total of $12,531 in Kagan Scholarships.

Scholarships are only offered for the Summer Academy in Florida. Scholarships are not available for Kagan's Regional Summer Academies.

For your chance to win a Summer Academy Scholarship, tell us why you should be selected and how you will share what you learn with your students and colleagues. Your desire to learn Kagan Structures is all you will need for class since tuition fees and complete course materials are covered for one 2020 Summer Academy workshop or institute! See the What You Win section to the right for more details.

There are three separate application forms—one for practicing teachers, one for administrators, and one for student teachers currently enrolled in a college or university teacher education program. The online application form will include your information, the 2020 Summer Academy institute or workshop you desire, and three open-ended questions for which your answers must be kept to a 350-word maximum. This year, the three questions are:

1) Why should Kagan select you to receive free tuition?

2) How will you share what you learn with other teachers at your school, district, or beyond?

3) What success have you already had in implementing Kagan?

You may either type your answers directly into the online application form or use a separate word processing program and then copy and paste your answers into the online application form.

Prior Kagan Scholarship recipients are not eligible.

Deadline: March 15, 2020
