Unique Opportunities & Scholarships for All

All teachers who apply to a Freedoms Foundation seminar are eligible for full scholarships. 

We know the powerful difference access to this experience makes in the life of a teacher and, in turn, the lives and experiences of their students.

This unprecedented opportunity is made possible because of our generous donors and partners. Because of our donors, our scholarship program removes the financial barriers of access to continuing education.
