Apply for Scholarship to Attend 2018 SDE National Conference

The 2017 SDE National Conference was dedicated to our beloved founder, leader, and inspiration, Jim Grant. During his decades of service to schools and students across the U.S. and around the world, Jim shared his passion, instructional strategies, and wisdom to help teachers and administrators teach and lead more effectively. He impacted the lives of thousands of educators, who in turn impacted the lives of tens of thousands of children.

To honor him, SDE has established a scholarship to the 2018 SDE National Conference in Jim’s name to be awarded each year to a dedicated teacher, allowing him or her to attend the flagship conference that Jim loved so dearly. The award includes conference registration to the 2018 SDE National Conference in Las Vegas, NV (July 9-13, 2018) and expenses (including airfare and ground transportation, luxury suite at the Venetian, and meal allowance).

Details of the Jim Grant Extraordinary Educator Scholarship are now available at

Deadline to apply is January 30, 2018.

Winner will notified by February 28, 2018.

Thank you,

SDE’s Jim Grant Scholarship Committee
