Stipends and Scholarships

Deadline: Friday, April 7, 2017

CARLA offers current LCTL instructors at the University of Minnesota a special scholarship to attend one of the CARLA summer institutes. Teachers will be required to pay a non-refundable $25 commitment fee, but the balance of the institute cost will be paid by CARLA–a value of $325!

A limited number of scholarships will be awarded to current U of MN LCTL faculty and staff on a first-come, first-served basis until Friday, April 7, 2017. Each LCTL teacher may apply for only one scholarship and only University of Minnesota instructors may apply.

To apply for a CARLA summer institute LCTL scholarship:

  1. Fill out the U of MN the LCTL Teacher Scholarship Request Form. You will need to sign in using your U of MN user ID.
  2. CARLA will review your request. If you meet the selection criteria, CARLA will send you a registration code to activate your scholarship within 3-5 business days of submission.
  3. Register online for the institute using the special code. You will be required to pay a non-refundable $25 commitment fee at the time of registration.
