The Geiger Education and Travel Scholarship supports full-time teachers and administrators in schools on Maine’s year-round, unbridged islands through funding for off-island professional development and experiential learning opportunities. By investing in unique, inspiring experiences for teachers and school leaders, these funds are meant to improve student learning.

Scholarships of up to $2,500 will be awarded for travel and/or educational expenses. Recipients will be asked to submit an essay and photos detailing their experience for future program promotion. If awarded, recipients will not be eligible to re-apply for the Geiger Education and Travel Scholarship for Teachers for five years.
