National Board of Professional Teaching Standards

The Foundation provides grants to teachers to pursue national certification and re-certification from the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards. Candidates for these grants must sign a pledge that they will remain as teachers in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools after successfully completing the initial certification or re-certification process.

Teachers may also apply for Conference Presenter Assistance. Presenters going to an in-state conference are eligible for $250. Grants of up to $500 are available for out-of-state travel expenses. In addition, presenters may request funds to cover one day of substitute teacher pay of $125.

Contact the Foundation office at for application information in order to access these grants.
