We Remember Fund for Teachers Founder Raymond Plank

Fund for Teachers

Last summer, 31 teachers and Fund for Teachers fellows from Oklahoma schools returned from learning odysseys in locations in Europe, South America and North America. Discovery and insight bloomed as fellows adventured through archaeological digs, attended festivals and conventions, toured historical locations, experimented with new technology, learned new languages and cultures, met key people in their fields and much more.

The Fund for Teachers grant program awards fellowships of up to $5,000 for individual teachers and up to $10,000 for teams of teachers for self-designed professional development experiences to take place anywhere in the world during the summer months. The grant cycle application process is opens online at on October 1, 2018.

Fund for Teachers supports teachers in their desire to improve their craft and gain understanding by offering professional development unique to the needs of their students and teaching philosophy. Since 2006, the Fund for Teachers program in Oklahoma has provided more than $2.9 million in grant funds to 826 Oklahoma teachers.
