Teacher Education Grants

2022-2023 Applications are OPEN!
Deadline: Monday, November 7, 2022, 4pm

The Ottawa Catholic Teachers Association provides Teacher Education Grants in the amount of up to $800 each.

These are awarded bi-annually with priority given to applicants who are trying to move to a higher QECO category on the salary grid. Applicants must be permanent or occasional members of our Unit, demonstrate financial need, provide proof of completion of a university course and submit their application within one year of successful course completion. There are a minimum of 6 grants to be awarded in this Fall round.

If you are already receiving funding for this course from another source (joint OECTA/OCSB subsidy, Ministry, or OCSB) you will not be eligible for a grant.

Apply online here for a Teacher Education Grant by Monday, November 7, 2022 at 4pm. NOTE: You must be logged into a PERSONAL Gmail account to upload your documents in the application.

Preference will be given to those individuals in the lower QECO categories.
The recipients of this award will be selected by the local Ottawa Catholic Teachers
Awards Committee

Applications will be received and reviewed twice a year at the end of October/beginning of November and at the end of April.
