The 2eASD grant has several full scholarships available for Confratute July 14–18, 2024.

We define students as 2e as those who have both academic talents as well as disabilities. These disabilities may include dyslexia, dyscalculia, attention deficit disorder, and autism spectrum disorder, as well as others. Our grant focuses on those students who are 2e with autism, however, the information that will be provided at Confratute can be applied to 2e students in general.

During Confratute this summer, we will offer both a keynote and a special strand (three-day class), co-taught by Sally Reis and Susan Baum, on using strength-based pedagogy to engage, teach, and support students who are 2e.

Are you interested in creating a program for students who are 2e? Do you currently teach 2e students and want to learn more about strength-based pedagogy?

We have funds set aside to provide full scholarships for educators interested in creating programs for students who are 2e. Confratute registration, meals, housing, and transportation to and from the airport are included. We also can provide reimbursement of up to $500.00 for your airfare or car mileage to Confratute.

Program Requirements:

To qualify for the scholarship, you must be working with students who are 2e, be willing to attend Confratute, and participate in the activities outlined above. In addition, you will be required to submit a final project of your choice about how you will support 2e students (i.e. case study, development of a new program, plan for incorporation of new strategies learned).

How to Apply:

The scholarship application is available here and all applications are due by May 1. You will be notified if a scholarship has been awarded by May 10th.

This scholarship is open only to individuals who are citizens of the United States. Participation is restricted to comply with the requirements of a federal grant. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
