Shelby County High School teacher Jennifer Moore is one of 30 teachers in Alabama to be awarded a scholarship to attend the College Board AP Summer Institute.
This year, more than 2,300 teachers from throughout the nation applied for highly competitive College Board AP Summer Institute Scholarships. The scholarships cover the cost of tuition, and in some cases all-expenses for the innovative AP Summer Institute. College Board offers these highly prized scholarships to educators to assist local school systems in building their local AP Programs.
Moore, who teaches AP Chemistry, received the 2019 AP Rural Fellows Scholarship. The $1,500 scholarship can be used toward professional development, tuition, and expenses to attend the summer institute June 24-27 at the University of Alabama.
These scholarships are helping teachers to increase the effectiveness of their local AP school programs. The total investment, for all scholarships awarded in Alabama this year was a little over $26,000.
