Teacher Institute: Application Instructions

There is no planned VASTS Teacher Institute at this time. Future institutes will be advertised as funding becomes available.

Online Application

Once you have submitted the on-line application, you will receive an email confirming the submission.

Letters of Recommendation

Two on-line letters of recommendation are required and should be provided by a current or former supervisor, department chair, school administrator or someone who can attest to the applicant's professional qualifications. (Note: the application system will allow for the two letters of recommendation to be uploaded until January 5th, 2015. But please try to apply earlier than the day of the deadline as the holiday season may still be challenging to write recommendations for your application.)

Once the applicant has submitted their application, the system will email the specified individuals instructions on how to submit their on-line letters of recommendation. Please inform them that they will be receiving an email from applications@spacegrant.org with these instructions. All letters of recommendation must be submitted via the on-line application system. Letters of recommendation submitted in any other manner will not be accepted.

Important Note: It is the responsibility of the applicant to follow up with the people who are providing letters of recommendation to ensure the recommendations are submitted electronically by the deadline. The applicant will receive an email notification when each of these letters is submitted.
