NSELA and Vernier Software and Technology are celebrating their sixth year sponsoring the Vernier Emerging Science Education Leader Scholarship (VESELS). This ongoing partnership supports six $500.00 scholarships for emerging leaders, one from each of the six NSELA Regions, to attend the annual NSELA Summer Leadership Institute (SLI) in June 2022 in Detroit, MI. The Emerging Science Education Leader Scholarship was founded with support from Dr. Jo Anne Vasquez who started the scholarship fund in 2014. 

Award Criteria and Application Process:

The following criteria must be met to apply for the scholarship. Does not need to be a member of NSELA prior to the application. When a candidate applies, must become a member of NSELA.

  • Emerging leader role at the school, district, state or informal level for three years or less. The three-year limit is specific to the leadership role and work for which the candidate is being nominated. Previous leadership roles that are very different are not counted in the three years.

  • Submission of an application packet that includes: resume or vita, personal letter with evidence that illustrates emerging leadership, and a support letter from a supervisor.

  • Agree to work with an NSELA mentor through June 2023. During the SLI, all scholarship awardees will have meetings with the mentor and share how they will apply SLI learning to their work settings. After six months, awardees will reflect on how they are applying their SLI experience in the Navigator newsletter and online with other scholarship awardees and the mentor.

Applications are now open and the deadline: April 15, 2022

If you have questions please, contact Rebecca Hite, Awards Chair.
