The Teaching Academy invites you to attend Shark Tank!

Doctoral students and Postdoctoral fellows have been selected to present proposals to our panel of Education Scholarship Sharks, who will distribute $10,000 among the project(s). The best presentation proposal might win it all, or the pot might be divided among selected projects!
Your vote counts! The audience vote will inform the Sharks’ decision. Fall treats will be served!

Please join us for this new and exciting Education Innovation grant opportunity - RSVP!
