Travel scholarships for Teacher Exchange

Have you seen a project at the festival you especially like? Do you want to continue the exchange with an international colleague you met at the festival?

School teachers who met each other at the festival can apply for a travel scholarship to deepen the exchange or develop a new STEM project together. Science on Stage Europe provides a subsidy of up to 300 € for travel costs.

Aim of this exchange is to develop a new STEM project together which can be handed in as 'Joint Project' for the upcoming Science on Stage festival (see below).

Joint projects

Besides national delegations there will be several additional places at the Science on Stage festivals for teachers offering internationally developed projects, so called 'Joint Projects'.

The festival committee decides about the participation of joint projects. 

These projects should be from teachers who met at a European Science on Stage festival and decided to develop a project together.
For the evaluation the development or the progress of the project in the course of time must be obvious.

Teachers with joint projects can directly apply at Science on Stage Europe for the next European Science on Stage festival 2019 in Cascais, Portugal, by 31 January 2019. The official application form will follow soon.
