FROM: Linda M. Wallinger, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction

SUBJECT: 2011 College Board AP Fellows Program for AP Summer Institutes

The College Board AP Fellows Program awards scholarships to secondary school teachers who will teach AP® courses in schools that serve economically disadvantaged students or traditionally underrepresented minority students. College Board AP Fellow recipients will be offered a scholarship of $1,000 to attend a College Board-endorsed AP Summer Institute (APSI) during the summer of 2011. The scholarships assist teachers with the costs (e.g., registration fees and travel expenses) of attending a week-long APSI for professional development. College Board AP Fellows scholarships cannot be used to attend the AP Annual Conference, to participate in one- or two-day workshops, Pre-AP workshops/institutes or to purchase classroom materials.

AP Summer Institutes are typically held on college, university, and high school campuses during the months of June, July, and August. Specific dates and locations for 2011 AP Summer Institutes will be available on AP Central® in January 2011 at apcentral.collegeboard.com/events.
