The Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) announces that teachers can apply for the Juan J. and Rudee Rodríguez Teacher Travel Fellowship Fund. This fund was established to assist educators with costs associated with professional enhancement travel.

The 2018 application is available at under the Nontraditional Scholarships tab, and applications must be submitted online by Tuesday, Oct. 31 at 4 p.m. to be considered. Eligible applicants must be certified educators teaching full time in a Harrison County public school. The educators must be members of the teacher’s union and have at least three years of teaching experience.

Funds may be used to cover transportation, lodging and meals. Funds may also be used to purchase artifacts and teaching materials that the educator will use in the classroom.

The intent of the fund is that educators will be able to explore and experience other cultures, with strong preference given to inland Latin American, Asian or non-Western European areas.
