SPESC offers assistance grants in the amount of $600 for adjunct instructors to encourage participation in SPE. The money is awarded to adjunct instructors specifically to help defray travel expenses to attend the conference.
Any current SPE member who is employed during the 2014-2015 school year as an adjunct instructor in the South Central region may apply for an SPESC assistance grant. Preference will be given to those adjuncts who can articulately demonstrate their interest in attending the conference with a history of involvement with SPE.
