Every year, the Montana Financial Education Coalition (MFEC) offers scholarships for Montana Teachers (PreK-12) to attend the Jump$tart National Educator Conference. MFEC teacher scholarship applications to attend the conference may be submitted online using the MFEC teacher scholarship application form. The deadline for the submission of MFEC scholarship applications is June 30, 2022. Please review the MFEC’s teacher scholarship policy before submitting the application.

The Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy also provides teachers with scholarships to attend this conference. The MFEC encourages teachers to submit both applications to increase your chances of landing a scholarship. Here is the link to Jump$tart’s teacher scholarship webpage which includes their scholarship application and criteria.

The National Educator Conference is scheduled for November 4-6, 2022, in Atlanta, Georgia at the Lowes Atlanta Hotel. This is the only national conference dedicated to personal finance education in the classroom and the professionals who teach it. The conference is designed for K-12 classroom educators who teach personal finance or incorporate it into any other subject.
